ASCE defines sustainability as a set of environmental, economic, and social conditions – the “Triple Bottom Line” – in which all of society has the capacity and opportunity to maintain and improve its quality of life indefinitely, without degrading the quantity, quality or the availability
of natural, economic, and social resources.
As one of the Society’s three strategic initiatives, ASCE’s focus on sustainability is guided by a
Board-level committee and supported by a broad community of local committees and technical groups.
The Committee on Sustainability shall direct, oversee, and coordinate the Society's implementation of ASCE's Sustainability strategic initiative. The Committee on Sustainability shall also provide oversight of ASCE's involvement in the Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure (ISI)
ASCE has over 20 Sustainability Committees
