Sustainable Cities Task Force

Ontario’s engineers need to be empowered with greater autonomy to provide essential management expertise and oversight of public and private infrastructure, enhancing the value, functionality, and resiliency of projects that support our communities.

Where innovation and environment thrive alongside each other, sustainable cities light the path to a greener and brighter future. As engineers, we are responsible for designing cities that meet the needs of the present without compromising on the needs of future generations.

This task force considers all sides of sustainability, from ‘green’ buildings to advocating for Qualifications Based Selection (QBS) to government. Recent focuses of this task force have been in the space of green building retrofits, creating a QBS framework, the re-use of concrete aggregates and comparing Canadian infrastructure to Japan to identify possible areas for improvement.
