Dr. Mariana Bozesan interviews:
Corey Glickman and Jeff Kavanaugh

How Practical is Sustainability?

While several governments have launched their new green deals to implement the Paris Accord and the UN Agenda 2030, Corey Glickman and Jeff Kavanaugh have provided a timely, much-needed, and actionable guide on how to make it happen. It is called “Practical Sustainability: Circular commerce, smarter spaces, and happier humans” and is a well-researched and science-based handbook that shows in detail how to achieve environmental targets and carbon neutrality through circular commerce and exponential technologies across industries including smart cities. 

This book should be required reading for anyone involved with sustainability, intelligent buildings, and supply chains, because it is illustrating how technology combined with physical environments can elevate human potential while ushering in a greener, more prosperous future. 

And this is why, I have the great pleasure to present to you my recent interview with the authors Corey Glickman and Jeff Kavanaugh. 

Named among the top 100 influential designers of the decade, Corey Glickman is VP of Sustainability, Smart Spaces, and Strategic Design at Infosys. He is a member of MIT’s Global Technology Advisory Board and faculty expert guest lecturer with Singularity University. 

Jeff Kavanaugh is adjunct Professor at the Jindal School of Management at the University of Texas at Dallas and Vice President and head of the Infosys Knowledge Institute, the research and thought leadership arm of Infosys.
