American Society of Civil Engineers
Seattle Section Sustainability Committee


Our mission is to bring local professionals, civil engineers, planners, facility owners and managers, and students together to discuss current and future sustainability issues facing the Seattle area. The Committee promotes sustainable development principles through professional development and outreach activities.


As an organization of professionals tasked with meeting the physical infrastructure needs of the society now and in the future, sustainability is intrinsic to ASCE.  The ASCE Seattle Section Sustainability Committee exists to educate and advocate on sustainability in the context of civil engineering, as well as to connect professionals interested in sustainability within the Puget Sound.

Green Apple Day

In the coming months, we will be having our annual  Green Apple Day of Service, which is USGBC sponsored event where people volunteer to help schools become more green through local service projects. In the past, we have helped schools make rain barrels, worm compost bins, and teach students about how to reduce energy in their schools (see Past Events).
