The MIT Industrial Liaison Program presents a webinar series on Sustainability, March 9. 2021, 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM

Join the MIT Industrial Liaison Program in The Leading Edge webinar series on Sustainability on Tuesday, March 9, 11:00AM – 1:00PM EST. This webinar is a broad overview of sustainability research at MIT. Fields include: materials science, energy, recycling, economic policy, and urban planning.

At MIT, sustainability can mean many things. New materials for everything from electronics to infrastructure which are both functional and kind to the environment. “Green” government and corporate policies which regulate energy and greenhouse gas production. Innovative urban planning for a city of the future which is efficient, but also accessible and abundant. Whether stated in economic, environmental, social, or technological terms, sustainability is the capacity to endure – to consume, grow, and thrive – but not to be consumed and perish in the process. Join us for this two-part webinar series which explores how MIT and its community of researchers and corporate members are leading the way in sustainability research.

Today you will hear from:

  • John Fernandez on The MIT Environmental Solutions Initiative (ESI)
  • Yossi Sheffi on When to Embrace Sustainability in a Business (and When Not To)
  • Sergey Paltsev on The Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change: Advancing a Sustainable World through Interconnected Global and Regional Systems
