Accelerating infrastructure sustainability

Infrastructure professionals are leading the effort to decarbonize and climate-proof our infrastructure on a scale and pace never seen before. Yet they face multiple obstacles, from engineering resource capacity shortfalls to challenges in aligning the information and teams necessary for success.  

It’s time to reimagine what’s possible by leveraging data for better and more resilient infrastructure. Through innovations like AI-powered infrastructure digital twins, we can accelerate the digital and sustainable transitions necessary for climate action.

Since no one company or organization can address these challenges alone, Bentley will join with governments, businesses, and civil society at COP28 to discuss how we can address key issues, such as:

  • 1

    Decarbonizing infrastructure

Built infrastructure is responsible for more than 75% of global greenhouse gas emissions, and 75% of the infrastructure required by 2050 still needs to be built. Existing and new infrastructure must be designed, built, and operated with sustainability and resilience in mind.

  • 2

    Powering the Energy Transition

The energy industry is undergoing one the largest industrial transitions in modern history. Understanding the earth and its subsurface are indispensable for making clear, confident decisions to accelerate clean energy production, transmission, and distribution and aid the shift to net zero.

  • 3

    climate-proofing cities

The global population is expected to increase by 2 billion over the next 30 years. Digitization is essential to effectively plan and deliver the sustainable infrastructure and services necessary to ensure urban resilience, climate adaptation, inclusive cities, and residents’ well-being.  

  • 4

    Overcoming Water Challenges

In many ways, climate change is water change, as it affects water quantity, quality, and availability. Integrated urban water management and water system modernization can help communities improve access to clean water and sanitation and minimize climate change effects such as water scarcity and floods.

Meet Us at COP28
