Stronger Together: Sustainable Networks

This is Shaping Sustainable Places, a new Skanska podcast. We’re here to recognize, encourage and inspire stakeholders in the industry and beyond to accelerate the transition to a more sustainable, resilient, zero-carbon built environment. In each episode, we’ll be speaking with industry and civic leaders, policymakers and other champions of change to explore innovative solutions to real challenges.


Sustainability is a team effort. No organization can achieve carbon neutrality on its own but, by working together, we can enact a holistic plan of sustainability that creates a cleaner, safer and healthier built environment.


This episode features Clare de Briere, EVP and Regional Manager at Skanska USA Commercial Development, and Executive Committee Chair at Urban Land Institute Americas; Cristina Gamboa, CEO at the World Green Building Council; and Sylvester Turner, Mayor of Houston. 


Together, these three leaders describe ways that industry and civic collaboration creates successful sustainability initiatives:


  • Clare describes the ULI’s Greenprint network and how it promotes partnerships across public municipalities and private organizations.
  • Cristina outlines a holistic model of sustainability and how the sharing of that model provides a blueprint that guides net-zero development around the world.
  • Sylvester explains how he and his fellow city leaders openly learn from each other’s projects to find new ways to implement local sustainability initiatives.


You can tune in, listen and subscribe to the podcast on iTunes and Spotify.
