Mobilized by The Lemelson Foundation and VentureWell with input from hundreds of stakeholders across sectors, the EOP initiative seeks to create systemic change by establishing environmentally sustainable engineering as a core tenet of the profession. To achieve this, the initiative provides a roadmap for integrating fundamental principles of sustainability into engineering education to support the health of the planet and the lives it sustains.
All engineers will be equipped to design, build, code and invent with the planet in mind.
Engineers have outsized impact on the world. From new products to new buildings and modes of transportation, an engineer’s decisions regarding design, source materials, production, distribution, and disposal can make a difference on whether their work contributes to or mitigates environmental impact. However, most engineering students are not equipped to apply the core principles of sustainable design and environmental responsibility.
Engineering education must cultivate engineers and inventors who design and build for the smallest environmental footprint possible.
Students, professionals, educators, consumers, corporations and governments around the world are demanding greater responsiveness to planetary protection. Organizations like the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) and professional engineering associations are highlighting the need to accelerate the integration of competencies of environmental sustainability across engineering education.
More than ever, there is increasing demand and collective will to transform the engineering profession to address environmental sustainability.
