Brief history
Brief History Sustainability

Codes of ethics

Inclusion of sustainability in some codes

ABET Criteria

Individual society efforts on corruption, corporate social responsibility, sustainability


Abet criteria
ABET Criteria Sustainability

  • 3(c) an ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability

  • 3(f) an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility

  • 3(h) the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context

  • 4(c) a general education component that complements the technical content of the curriculum and is consistent with the program and institution objectives.

  • Role of Engineering societies Sustainability

  • Defining the practice of engineering

  • Codes of Ethics and Codes and standards define the practice of engineering

  • Social responsibility of individual engineers versus social responsibility of engineering societies see Layton


Professional societies social responsibility and sustainability

ASME is developing engineering approaches for developing countries

Other societies have similar activities underway

ASCE and AAAS


Professional societies social responsibility and sustainability

Societies are countriesworking together

This is one example

Another Example countries


Iso 26000 dis guidance on social responsibility

  • The aim of social responsibility is to contribute to sustainable development.

  • Sustainable development - development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs

  • NOTE Sustainable development is about integrating the goals of a high quality of life, health and prosperity with social justice and maintaining the earth’s capacity to support life in all its diversity. These social, economic and environmental goals are interdependent and mutually reinforcing. Sustainable development can be treated as a way of expressing the broader expectations of society as a whole.


Summary thoughts
Summary Thoughts countries

  • Engineering Education-increase faculty involvement in professional education

  • Social responsibility of individual engineers-participate

  • Social responsibility of engineering societies-cooperate

  • Social responsibility of engineering profession -interact
