Sustainable Engineering

In addition to recognizing the achievements of our deserving award recipients, the 2021 OPEA gala will highlight the increasing demand for sustainable engineering. As evidenced by the 17 sustainable development goals of the United Nations, engineers are increasingly being called upon to take a lead role in designing and building with a more holistic and sustainable perspective—one that values and integrates a myriad of environmental, economic, and social factors. Today’s engineers are vital to creating a sustainable built environment that meets the needs of today’s society while considering future generations.
