Chapin Industries and Urban Networks have now teamed to address global climate and sustainability issues. Both firms are founded on the principles of discovering and sharing technology to address social, economic and environmental issues that are stressing the evolution of the planet. The leaders of these companies are preparing articles for general information concerning global issues. The purpose of the forthcoming series of articles is to provide insight into the environmental problems we face and to identify solutions that represent investment opportunities for the future.

In addition to our strategic planning efforts, we have developed more than 50MW of solar energy in the U.S. and are now pursuing waste to energy projects in multiple forms.
Together we acknowledge that obviously no individual has all the answers to such complex problems but there are experts in every conceivable discipline associated with global development. Both firms have established networks of professionals who can provide the highest standard of service in multiple disciplines and technologies and effectively make these services available to clients when needed worldwide.
Technology today also enables us to be more efficient with our time and resources which translates into savings for the client.

Technology also provides near limitless intellectual capital which promotes state of the art standards for excellence in the delivery of professional services.
All cities throughout the world are unique in their geography, physical form, politics, needs, resources and financial capabilities. Each holds their place in the continuum of urban evolution as it pertains to attitudes, traditions, commitment and capability to address problems related to climate change and the environment
Planning for society in the future is about the redevelopment of our cities and expert management of global natural resources. Whether it concerns sustainability practices, transportation improvements, architectural standards, alternative energy sources, ocean cleanup, reforestation or urban agriculture there are new technologies being developed to address these issues. Our quest is to bring these technologies to the market and help scale them to enable global impact.
