Sustainability

AIME promotes discussion and events on the sustainable use of our natural resources and materials in engineering designs. For years, it has hosted a multi-disciplinary sustainability committee which has planned a now bi-annual event entitled Engineering Solutions for Sustainability: Materials and Resources. The first iteration was a workshop in 2009, the second a symposium in 2015, and the latest a symposium in 2017.

 

Stay Connected to Sustainability Efforts Locally, Regionally, Nationally, or Internationally

AIME's Member Societies, SME and TMS, also typically send representatives to the AAES' Engineers Forum for Sustainability, led by AIME's sister Founder Society, AIChE.  For information on their initiatives, see http://www.aaes.org/working-groups#engineering-sustainability.
