WSBF Briefing: Round Table ‘Green Infrastructure – Overcoming Challenges and Building the Business Case’

WSBF Briefing: Round Table ‘Green Infrastructure – Overcoming Challenges and Building the Business Case’

January 2015

The Westminster Sustainable Business Forum held a round table to make the business case for Green Infrastructure (GI) and discuss what needs to be done to establish a proper link between investments in GI projects and the benefits derived from their implementation. The meeting also looked to challenge existing metrics and explore how these could be framed more adequately to facilitate GI investments, while also considering how national and Local Government can support business investment in GI.This event formed part of the Westminster Sustainable Business Forum’s work stream in partnership with the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) exploring what a ‘resilient city’ should look like and which city systems need to be put in place to achieve this.
