The Center for Sustainability’s Advisory Board, led by Mark Preston, provides strategic direction and ongoing program guidance.
Sustainability is central to ULI’s mission, and the Institute has a long history of examining best practices in land use and community-building that promote responsible resource use and long-term resilience—not just for the planet, but also for the benefit of people and profits.
The Center will be the focal point for ULI programs related to sustainability, energy, climate change, urban resilience, preparedness, and adaptability. In the Institute’s view, sustainability, livability, and prosperity are linked, and all are necessary components of community resilience.
