This inaugural report from ICE’s new community advisory boards identifies the key challenges that need to be tackled by the sector in the year to come.
Civil engineers are responsible for the infrastructure all around us. Our roads, bridges, power cables and streetlights are part of the daily fabric of life and – in most cases – we probably take them for granted.
However, climate change and trends such as growing urbanisation have disrupted the status quo and underlined the need for profound change – and soon. The Covid-19 pandemic has also brought a stark warning of what challenges could lie ahead.
Reducing our carbon footprint is crucial for a sustainable future and, with infrastructure being responsible for more than half of the UK’s total carbon emissions, civil engineers know they can, and must, play a vital role. That is why ICE is proud and excited to have established a vibrant group of experts, through its new community advisory boards, to make a significant contribution to ICE’s vision and especially for net zero.
ICE President Ed McCann, in his 2021 presidential address, set out how during his tenure ICE would examine the issue of improving infrastructure productivity within the context of delivering the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and achieving net zero carbon by 2050.
It is with this imperative that the nine community advisory boards, comprising infrastructure experts from a wide variety of sectors, sought to identify the significant challenges facing civil engineers and society in the year to come and present them through this report.
The report sets out the major issues that need to be addressed in areas aligned with ICE’s core objectives. These include:
The topics identified are wide-ranging but offer key insights to engineers and the infrastructure industry on some of the core challenges that need to be addressed in 2022.
