As advances in sustainability and renewable energy proposals become increasingly prominent; policymakers, business leaders, and even individuals share the responsibility of implementing and incorporating these proposals into pre-existing systems.
Much has been talked about, and many ideas have been exchanged, but what has been done and what should be done?
Under the theme “From Policy to Practice”, the 2017 UofT Sustainability Conference aims to showcase how various sustainable projects, ventures and policies are currently being applied within industry practice.
The conference brings together and connects individuals and groups from a variety of backgrounds: government, university, corporate, etc, in order to discuss sustainability within a broad range of sectors.
Recently, there has been an ongoing initiative to implement sustainable ideas and plans through various technologies and policies. However utilizing these technologies and applying these policies are not easily accomplished. “How do we take these Policies and apply them to Industry Practice?” That is the question we strive to address with the 2017 UofT Sustainability Conference.
