Sustainability in the Geotechnical Industry (1-Hour Webinar)

Kimberly K. Martin, PhD, PE, ENV SP

This course focuses on sustainability within the geotechnical industry. It covers various sustainability concepts like circular economy, greenhouse gas protocols, environmental justice, and net-zero goals, highlighting the importance of balancing environmental protection, social equity, and economic viability. The presentation emphasizes the need for industry-wide shifts towards sustainable practices, such as focusing on embodied carbon in building and infrastructure projects and setting environmental and social sustainability targets within companies. It advocates for the use of certifications like LEED to enhance learning and impact, and stresses the importance of adapting best practices to current needs, especially to combat urban heat island effects that impact the structural integrity of civil infrastructures.
