On the Road to A Sustainable Infrastructure: Part 1— Deﬁning Our Responsibilities
Publication: NEWEA Journal - Winter 2019
Abstract: This article, the first of a three-part series, introduces the need to incorporate sustainability into infrastructure design. We begin with how sustainability is defined and why it is important to include its three responsibilities—social well-being, environmental stewardship, and economic prosperity—into decision-making and design for infrastructure projects. Highlights of NEWEA’s sustainability survey conducted earlier in 2019 are also presented.
