SE 2050 was developed and is managed by a dedicated group of volunteers. All members of the team are members of the SE 2050 subcommittee of the SEI Sustainability Committee and bring each a unique perspective and level of expertise to SE 2050. The team is broken down into subgroups managed by a subgroup leader and the Leadership Group. The different subgroup areas of focus are:
Planning: Manage the SE 2050 business plan, membership, finances, and agenda for committee member meetings.
Database: Develop, maintain, and improve the SE 2050 Database. Analyze the collected data and provide meaningful insights to Signatory Firms and the broader industry toward the goal of achieving net zero embodied carbon structures.
Communications: Create the monthly newsletter, and track potential conferences and other speaking opportunities. Monitor the SE 2050 email account and provide yearly website and template presentation updates.
Partnerships: Identify key organizations whose mission and activities align with SE 2050, form partnerships, clarify the boundaries of the SE 2050 Commitment Program, and maintain the Advisory Group and SE Firm Executives group.
Program Mechanics: Establish and annually update the SE 2050 Program requirements, communicate with signatories about program updates, and ensure signatory firms are meeting the minimum requirements of the SE 2050 Commitment program on their ECAP and database submissions.
Resources: Produce, maintain, and publish resources on the SE 2050 website for structural engineers on the topic of embodied carbon.
Infrastructure: Extend the SE 2050 Commitment Program to include structural engineers and firms specializing in infrastructure.
