Climate Crisis Task Force

Protecting the environment is essential to promoting a sustainable and healthy lifestyle for current and future generations. As problem solvers, engineers provide important insights on system planning, efficiencies and integration, total lifecycle costing and scenario analysis for sound policy making when it comes to combating climate change and mitigating its impact.


Engineers are the key to a sustainable future. The Climate Crisis Task Force believes not only do all engineers have a responsibility to consider their impact on the environment, but they also have a responsibility to take the lead in saving our planet.

We have to ensure our pursuit of a green future is truly sustainable. The climate crisis is real and happening now and we cannot wait to act. This task force recognizes their responsibility and explores all paths of action from the perspective that only engineers can offer. Some of their recent work has explored the role of nuclear power, green hydrogen, resilient infrastructure guidelines and EV charging infrastructure.
