A Business Case for Sustainable Asset Management Planning in Nova Scotia--In the fall of 2016, UNSM worked a team of graduate students at Dalhousie University to examine the role sustainability plays in asset management planning for public infrastructure. The students developed a report demonstrating that by applying sound environmental and sustainable management practices to retrofitting, building and maintaining assets, municipalities can reduce costs and energy use, and make their infrastructure more resilient to projected changes in climate. Ultimately, this will help them balance their infrastructure investments with environmental performance goals, while mitigating climate risks and improving service delivery.
