Felipe Montoro Jens Advocates For Environmentally Responsible Infrastructure

Brazil is a rapidly developing nation. While this has grown the economy, it has often come at the expense of the ecosystem and environment. Felipe Montoro Jens, who has been building infrastructure for the past 25 years, is a strong advocate for creating environmentally responsible developments. His services are used by governments, private companies, and large corporations.

Felipe Montoro Jens develops the financial strategies of infrastructure projects. He was educated at one of Brazil’s most prestigious administrative colleges, the Getulio Vargas Foundation. He also graduated from Arizona State University’s Thunderbird School of Global Management. He has worked for several multinational firms and has been involved in some of Brazil’s largest infrastructure projects.

He advises Public-Private Partnership(s). Since governments in Brazil don’t have the expertise to create infrastructure themselves, they use PPPs to have private companies build projects. Felipe Montoro Jens says that if projects are planned well the negative impact they have on the environment can be minimalized. You can find Montoro Jens on Twitter @felipemontoroj for more information.

He is currently focused on bringing responsible tourism to Santa Catarina state where Rio de Janeiro is located. People all over the world flock to Rio de Janeiro as tourists. While this brings in a lot of money, the large amounts of people are taxing the environment. The current infrastructure is unable to keep up with demand.

Felipe Montoro Jens says that throughout Santa Catarina there are traffic jams caused by residents and tourists. Adding to the problem is that many of the roads need repairs. Other infrastructure like power, water, and sanitation are also overloaded. Even a small storm often knocks out power in a widespread area.

He is helping build infrastructure in Santa Catarina to help. A large part of his focus is on building this infrastructure in a way that doesn’t negatively impact the environment such as the Amazon Rain Forest. He says that with due diligence these projects can help people while not harming the forest.
