The Future of Water: Sustainability Stewardship and Leadership

Register for this Event  

Hear the compelling and informative presentation by our keynote speaker, George Hawkins, CEO of DC Water and visionary in water management and sustainability. George will discuss the new green infrastructure opportunities for you and the District to use as important tools to reduce combined sewer overflows to the Potomac River and Rock Creek. Learn about the prospects where you can use low-impact, green infrastructure approaches like green roofs, porous pavement and rain gardens to provide greater benefits to your properties and the community.

Take a journey with Bill Updike, Chief, Green Building & Climate Branch, DOEE and see the important opportunities, strategies and solutions you can leverage to more sustainably manage and conserve water in your workplace.

  • Celebrate and congratulate the leaders of the Smarter DC Challenge, the District’s Sustainability Workplace Game who are winning for their organizations and for DC.
  • Join us in launching Year Two of the Challenge; we will be focusing on office-based organizations, properties and the hospitality sector – hotels, restaurants, caterers and more.
  • Join the Smarter DC Challenge team, the Department of Energy and Environment (DOEE) and DC Water to learn, have fun, and celebrate all of our wins and winners (so far!).
