About

According to a World Economic Forum study America’s infrastructure has got worse, by comparison with other countries, over the past decade. Overall, the US has gone from a 5th place to a 24th place in the World Economic Forum’s ranking between 2002 and 2011. In order to make the US more competitive for businesses, the infrastructure investments are crucial. Several indirect jobs are created due to these investments, as well as the increase of the consumption index. While re-building America’s infrastructure – can we look at sustainable options? Are there existing frameworks or rating systems like LEED for transportation infrastructure?
