Cities and sustainability

Visualization studio

The future is urban.

Cities produce more than 70 per cent of the world’s carbon emission. The UN expects that 68 per cent of the global population will live in a city by 2050.

Densification, however, can also offer novel opportunities to reduce our ecological footprint.


To ensure the future of our urban and cultural centres, Concordia advances bold thinking on cities and sustainability.

Our expertise spans net-zero buildings, smart-grid security, electric transportation, urban ecology, real-estate, urban planning, renewable technologies and more.
