Sustainable retirement

Nicholas Hild

An interview by Tom Curry with Nicholas Hild, Senior Sustainability Scientist in the Global Institute of Sustainability and Emeritus Professor in the College of Technology and Innovation, was featured in the Journal of Environmental Management Arizona, February/March 2012 issue.

Dr. Hild reflects on his move into retirement and the changes he has witnessed in Arizona's environmental regulations. Dr. Hild observes that Arizona's stance on the environment seems to match with who gets elected to the State legislature. Local businesses understand that environment regulation compliance is a positive step towards sustainability. Dr. Hild advises that university sustainability programs must have technical requirements that are combined with policy education, so that while entering the workforce, students can properly advise their employers with truly sustainable solutions.
