COMMITTING

TO NET ZERO

The mission of the SE 2050 Commitment is to support the SE 2050 Challenge and transform the practice of structural engineering in a way that is holistic, firm-wide, project based, and data-driven. By prioritizing reduction of embodied carbon, participating firms can more easily work toward net zero embodied carbon structural systems by 2050.




SEI

On December 16, 2019 the Board of Governors of SEI unanimously voted to support the development of the SE 2050 Commitment Program:

“We, the Structural Engineering Institute (SEI) of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), support the vision and ambition of the SE 2050 Challenge. We, as a leading structural engineering organization in the United States, recognize the need for coordinated action across our profession to achieve the globally stated goal of net zero carbon by 2050.”
