Submitted by a first-time PMI San Francisco Bay Area Chapter Sustainability Program attendee:
This brings up some more questions as well: What is the optimal balance of water, power and other factors that determine sustainability? How is that measured, and how does the definition of “sustainable” change and shift over time? Since it is rather difficult to change technologies in data centers based on shifts and changes in the industry, how do they remain sustainable over time? Even with sustainability, how do all these moving parts affect (positively or negatively) the planet as a whole? I’m looking forward to more presentations to help explore these topics further.
Note from the chapter’s vice president of sustainability: Join us for our next event on 24 February 2021 at 5:15 p.m. (PST)” “If You Build It, They Will Come. But Will They Stay?” with San Francisco Recreation & Parks Department Community Garden and Urban Agriculture Program Manager Mei Ling Hui.
