Sustainability in Action: Project Profiles

Click on each image to read details about the sustainability project.

Project Profiles Library

Through infrastructure projects large and small, civil engineers are applying principles of sustainability to deliver "triple bottom line" benefits to the public. This library of project profiles demonstrates how sustainable infrastructure provides economic, environmental and social benefits. These projects will span all sectors and scopes, ranging from under $1 million to more than $1 billion. This expanding library will help civil engineers research solutions, share data and information with clients, and find sources for further research. Users may rate and comment on profiles at the upper right of each page.

New profiles are encouraged. To submit one for consideration by ASCE's sustainability committee, go to our easy-to-use online form.
