Sustainability

Engineers Australia and its members are committed to creating and delivering outcomes that will ensure the long-term survival of life on earth in a fair and equitable manner.

For our members, sustainability means that future generations will enjoy environmental, social and economic conditions that are equal to or better than those enjoyed by the present generation.

Our Code of Ethics requires us to develop engineering solutions that repair and regenerate both natural and social capital, while maintaining economic health.  You can read the Sustainability Policy and the Climate Change Policy.   

EA has also produced guidelines with practical advice on how to implement sustainability called Implementing Sustainability: Principles and Practice.
