ASCE/COS 73-23: Standard Practice for Sustainable Infrastructure

Terry Neimeyer, Chair of the ASCE Committee on Sustainability, will be discussing ASCE’s first-of-its-kind standard, ASCE/COS 73-23: Standard Practice for Sustainable Infrastructure, which provides guidance for infrastructure owners to develop and implement sustainable solutions throughout a project’s entire life cycle.  The standard is a non-mandatory, performance-based consensus standard designed for civil infrastructure ranging from transportation projects to water systems and the energy grid.

The standard’s performance-based approach to sustainability is intended to:
*Allow for implementing sustainability strategies on a project-by-project basis.
*Involve the project owner in establishing the “triple bottom line.”
*Facilitate the use of rating systems or other tools to measure the sustainability of the project.
*Encourage creativity and innovation in the design and construction community.
*Allow for optimizing any conflicting environmental, social, and economic requirements of the project.

ASCE 73-23 also focuses on reducing embodied carbon, which refers to the greenhouse gas emissions stemming from the entire process of transporting materials, constructing, operating, and maintaining an infrastructure project. The standard directs project owners to develop and implement a greenhouse gas emission reduction plan to reduce the total infrastructure solution emission by 15% from the solution’s baseline.
