Join Green Building Worldwide and Equitable Infrastructure Group and national infrastructure experts during this unique and dynamic Live Forum. 

By signing the $369 billion Inflation Reduction Act, the Biden Administration passed this historic legislation. It’s the most aggressive action taken to confront the climate crisis to recognize communities of color, who have been at the frontline of climate change, by lowering costs, advancing environmental justice while building a cleaner future, and growing the economy from the bottom up and the middle out.

 

The Discussion

  • Overview and impact of the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022

  • Effective implementation

  • Justice40

  • The Energy Directive, how the Act will leapfrog the U.S. ahead of every other country in climate change

  • What enterprises inclusive of disadvantaged firms must do to stay abreast of updates and increase participation

Why this discussion is important:

  • If positioned well, the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 will be the most significant investment the American government has made in fighting the climate crisis 

  • Millions of firms are on the brink of missing the opportunity inherent in this vehicle for climate action and economic recovery

  • Globally, infrastructure, which was simply public works in the past, is profoundly strategic; it is a $21 trillion global market with a long tail reaching deep into the future.
