    The SEI Sustainability Committee has been hard at work preparing for the introduction of the SE 2050 Commitment in November, which will encourage structural engineers to work towards net zero carbon emissions on their projects. You can hear more about this work and similar efforts in the U.K. at an upcoming webinar. We would love to hear your thoughts on these programs!
