Toronto Region Board of Trade podcast explores U of T’s green infrastructure

In a recent podcast of the Toronto Region Board of Trade’s Hit Go five-part series, U of T’s Vice-President of Operations and Real Estate Partnerships, Scott Mabury, discussed how the university’s aging buildings and maintenance backlog incentivized the prioritization of resilient infrastructure. This episode explains how to accelerate investments in sustainable infrastructure through a blended model of public and private funding. Other topics of this series focused on the climate economy include cleantech startups, electric vehicles and the infrastructure required to promote EV (Electric Vehicle) adoption, and financing models that overcome risk aversion to green investments among organizations and investors.
