This is our challenge. This is our chance.
For over 100 years, Black & Veatch has been a leader in the design and construction of sustainable infrastructure. Today, we recognize that climate change represents perhaps the greatest threat humanity has ever faced…and presents one of the great opportunities for innovation in our history.
Through this year’s IgniteX Program, we are soliciting proposals from bold, leading-edge thinkers and partners for technologies that promise to accelerate the development of decarbonization solutions.
