Celebrating Earth Day: The Importance of Infrastructure for a Sustainable Future
Happy Earth Day! Today, we celebrate the importance of protecting our planet and, at the heart of it, its infrastructure. The health of our buildings and infrastructure directly affects the well-being of humans and the environment. Therefore, maintaining the built environment is critical.
What is Earth Day?
Earth Day was first celebrated on April 22, 1970, to bring attention to our planet's environmental issues. Since then, it has become an annual event celebrated in over 190 countries, with millions of people coming together to show their support for the protection of the earth.
The Importance of Infrastructure on Earth Day
To boost sustainability and better protect the earth, it is essential to maintain and improve our infrastructure regularly. But unfortunately, society tends to focus on infrastructure only after a catastrophic disaster. Therefore, strategic planning around routine repairs, preventative maintenance, and long-term capital planning is essential.
Maintaining the Built Environment: Why it's Critical for Sustainability.
Maintaining the built environment is critical for sustainability as it directly influences the health of humans and the environment. In addition, infrastructure plays a significant role in our daily lives, from the buildings we live in and work in to the transportation systems we use. Neglecting routine maintenance and repair of these critical systems can lead to catastrophic disasters, affecting human lives and the natural world. Therefore, strategic planning around routine repair, preventative maintenance, and long-term capital planning is essential to ensure the health and sustainability of our built environment. By investing in the health of our infrastructure, we can contribute to a more sustainable future for our planet.
