Are your Engineering designs (or firms) transferring knowledge to actually change the world? The SE2050 initiative is a really new one! They are revealing some efforts towards global action in order to neutralize carbon and to sharing some experiences between colleagues (database). Feel free to express yourself in this sense. If your think you might be interested in participating, or help to move this project forward,… extend your future plans in this direction, Andre.
SE 2050 stands for the Structural Engineers 2050 Commitment Program that is in response to the SE 2050 Challenge issued in 2019 by the Carbon Leadership Forum (CLF) and the SE 2050 Commitment Program developed by the Sustainability Committee of the Structural Engineering Institute (SEI) of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). This site is dedicated to the SE 2050 Commitment Program or the SE 2050 Commitment for short. This comprehensive program has been designed to ensure substantive embodied carbon reductions in the design and construction of structural systems by the collective structural engineering profession.
The SE 2050 Commitment Program is being developed in response to the SE 2050 Challenge which states:
" All structural engineers shall understand, reduce and ultimately eliminate embodied carbon in their projects by 2050. "
Signing up to SE 2050
If you knows about a similar program, please be free to share and upload some info either!
Thank you for reading this.
Sincerely yours, Andre.
