Infrastructure Council

Working to advance transportation, water and sustainability issues.

Metro Atlanta’s built environment remains one of our region’s greatest assets.

To support metro Atlanta’s thriving economy, the MAC Infrastructure Council seeks innovative infrastructure solutions through research, advocacy, and collaborative leadership. The Council focuses on the areas of the environment and natural resources, energy, land use, sustainability, mobility, and transportation policy. Industry leaders crossing multiple sectors work together and with regional partners to elevate the region’s reputation as a world-class leader in infrastructure investment and sustainable business practices.
 

Leadership

MAC has pioneered numerous policy and research projects on issues which have significantly shaped our policy decisions and demonstrated employer and employee attitudes toward congestion and mobility. Further, many of our organizations and businesses are already doing their part through corporate social responsibility initiatives, raising metro Atlanta’s sustainability profile and advancing our agenda of continued economic development and an improved quality of life for citizens and businesses.
