"Smart cities are a necessity in a finite world with a growing, increasingly urbanised population.  They have the potential to revolutionise every aspect of daily life, including transport, food, housing, healthcare and education.  In doing so, they will seek to decouple growth and well-being from greenhouse gas emissions.  At their nexus will be the internet of things and the multiple business opportunities it offers, from smart thermostats to intelligent traffic control. Visionary investors will provide capital for the new world economy, allowing people to enjoy many of its potential benefits."
Hervé Duteil - Managing Director & CSR Regional Coordinator for BNP Paribas North America
