IMEG commits to SE 2050 to eliminate embodied carbon
IMEG has joined the Structural Engineers 2050 Commitment Program, created in response to and support of the SE 2050 Challenge for all structural engineers to understand, reduce, and ultimately eliminate embodied carbon in their projects.
“We are excited to be making this first step in being more mindful and understanding of embodied carbon and its impact on the environment,” said Laura Hagan, chair of IMEG’s Structural Sustainability Task Force. “By educating our structural engineers in sustainable design and construction best practices, tracking and reporting embodied carbon data, and developing reduction targets, we will do our part to support the SE 2050 Challenge.”
IMEG’s commitment to the program is the latest in the firm’s longstanding commitment to sustainability and the environment – both in terms of providing clients with energy-efficient, resource-saving design solutions and reducing the environmental impact of its own offices through a firmwide sustainability policy.
The SE 2050 Challenge was developed by the Carbon Leadership Forum (CLF) and the SE 2050 Commitment Program developed by the Sustainability Committee of the Structural Engineering Institute (SEI) of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE).
