A $3.6 trillion infrastructure bill, climate change and new economic and social challenges are solidifying the role of public-private partnerships in the U.S., according to a recent report released by Veolia North America and the Wharton School’s Initiative for Global Environmental Leaderships (IGEL).

The report outlines the current success and future potential of public-private partnerships to provide sustainable infrastructure solutions to our nation’s growing needs.

“The infrastructure challenges we face are well-known,” said Joanne Spigonardo, senior associate director of business development at Wharton’s IGEL program. “But the focus seems to be exclusively on financial constraints. For infrastructure to be sustainable, we need to focus on the critical element of the operational expertise.”
