Sustainability Guidance Panel

How to design, engineer and manage projects in tune with environmental, social and economic factors.

Civil engineers have a great opportunity to improve sustainability within the built environment. The panel's role is to identify areas that most need knowledge on sustainability and develop projects to address that need.

The panel meets quarterly and works to a three year program of activity alongside the other expert panels within the learned society.
