Engineering route map launched to deliver UN SDGs
ICE has launched a Sustainability Route Map, outlining a three-year plan for the global engineering community to better engage with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and demonstrate the impact of engineering projects.
To tackle each of the route map’s three key areas for action, ICE has set up working groups to deliver progress by 2021.
The Measuring, Monitoring and Reporting working group will evaluate current methods and provide a framework that allows engineers to consistently measure and report on the SDG impact of their infrastructure projects or programmes.
The Systems Approach working group will help engineers to adopt a collaborative, outcome-based system for delivering infrastructure, shifting away from self-contained single projects.
The Global Knowledge Sharing working group will bring UK and international professional engineering bodies together to increase SDG knowledge through education and continuing professional development (CPD).
