Sustainability is the concept of utilizing our physical, natural and social resources to meet our needs and aspirations without compromising the well-being of future generations and the global ecosystem. Since the early 1990s, APEGBC has consistently supported and encouraged its members to adapt sustainable principles within the practice of professional engineering and geoscience.
APEGBC members, through the Sustainability Committee, advise Council on these matters on an ongoing basis.
