Marty Rowland Speaks on November 18th
In the last few years, cities and industries have pursued programs that measure commitments and performance toward sustainable use of resources, primarily in response to the climate change crisis. Whereas the initial focus was about cutting back on use of carbon-based fuels, a few of us in the effort to create an international standard on The Circular Economy, have recognized that land value capture, return, and reuse (back into procurement of urban infrastructure services) is a marvelous circular process that ought to be included in the effort. The presentation will concern how the concept is incorporated in existing international standards, including ISO 55000 – Asset Management, ISO 37120 – Smart Cities, and ASTM E3210 – Infrastructure Management, making it reasonable that the Circular Economy standard should adopt a process already in place. When 100% of land value is captured, returned, and reused (and all other forms of taxation is abolished), the local economy could be described as performing as an endogenous wealth engine.
