The Capital Project Symposiums are a collaboration between Green Building Worldwide and EIG. We thank you for your continued participation. About GBW: Green Building Worldwide Capital Project Symposiums have been met with great interest. GBW is a Strategic Research, Communications, and Legislative Consulting firm examining, communicating and recording the movement of government, the private sector and individual leaders in delivering sustainable buildings and resilient infrastructure. We provide next generation platforms to support building, corporate, environmental and policy leaders involved in capital and development projects. Inclusion in both access and delivery is also at the core of who we are. About EIG: The Equitable Infrastructure Group (EIG) was established to counteract disparities and inefficiencies caused by the lack of information, access and opportunity that an overwhelming number of bad actors in key sectors have intrinsically created through a closed door climate. Sectors and municipalities are mandating equitable, sustainable, and resilient infrastructure. This shift is largely due to the increase in natural disasters, the demand on existing networks and a fundamental call for equity and transparency. As such, both public and private sectors must step forward offering unique capabilities as partners in new solutions and opportunities. For additional information, contact L.
