How it Works
By signing your firm (or office) up to join the SE 2050 Commitment Program you will be making a formal commitment to make substantive reductions of embodied carbon on your projects through measured reductions, advocacy and sharing of your results for the broader movement.
The Program is set up to work two-way street. We provide you the necessary tools, support, education, database and analysis to ensure your firm is in the best position to be successful in your move to embodied carbon reductions in the structural systems you design and materials you specific. We expect that you will provide the Program back the advocacy for this effort and measurement and reporting of your projects to guarantee a better informed movement and real quantitative analysis of where the trends are in our profession All to achieve the goal of net zero embodied carbon structural systems by 2050 using measurable metrics and establishing aggressive yet reasonable reduction targets.
Finally, we understand what its like to be a structural engineer and have the demands of deliverables and schedules. We play a critical role in all building and infrastructure projects. That being said we do expect that if you are signing up to this program that you remain actively engaged and find ways to contribute this important movement. To have success we have to do this together and we need as many structural engineers to engage in this effort. We sincerely hope you join us and help make net zero embodied carbon structures possible!
