It is the policy of NSPE that licensed professional engineers be good stewards of the environment in order to protect the environment for future generations. NSPE recognizes that attention to preserving and improving the environment is critical to the sustainability of the planet and is an integral part of the practice of engineering. NSPE advocates for the inclusion of licensed professional engineers in all engineering aspects related to the environment. NSPE volunteers and business entities are directed to implement this policy in relevant position statements, operating procedures, and business practices.
