Utilizing Innovative Materials to Reduce Urban Flooding
Our very own co-founder and V.P. of Market Development, Kevin Kunz, recently spoke with FreightWaves about the importance of innovative green infrastructure for flood mitigation and stormwater management.
FreightWaves provides supply chain organizations with fundamental data and context that help benchmark, analyze, monitor pricing and risks in the $9.6 Trillion dollar global logistics industry. On the heels of extreme flooding disrupting logistics in parts of the country, numerous industries have now been impacted by climate change.
As Tyler Cole, director of carbon intelligence at FreightWaves stated, “It’s refreshing to see that new, innovative solutions for replacing crumbling infrastructure are electing to focus on environmental upgrades alongside functionality. The hype around electrification and reducing emissions can at times overshadow other crucial areas of impact, such as efficient and safe water systems or gender equality. We need more firms like AquiPor to identify, develop and scale climate solutions.”
