The SEI Sustainability Committee website welcomes all design professionals. The goal of our website is to provide information relevant to sustainability in structural engineering, promote discussion of sustainable design topics in structural engineering, and serve as a link between organizations and efforts. Visitors may view the current efforts of the committee and refer to past publications.

For answers to big questions like "what does structural engineering have to do with sustainability?", see our FAQ page!
