AMONTario Climate Change & Asset Management Virtual Conference
Canada has been more advanced in asset management than the U.S., largely because its municipalities adopted PAS 55 and ISO 55000 before national legislation required it. AMONTario Climate Change & Asset Management Virtual Conference web series focuses on asset management lessons learned in Ontario and in other parts of Canada. The 3-part series focuses on the climate and environmental risks facing publicly owned physical infrastructure. The low-cost conference will provide tools for asset owners on planning, financial and social considerations in public infrastructure asset management. While the February, March and April events are focused on municipalities, the series will provide benefits to anyone involved in public infrastructure asset management. Register at this link.
