Committing to the SE 2050 Challenge
Keast & Hood is proud to announce that we have joined the SE 2050 Commitment Program as a Signatory Firm. We support the vision that all structural engineers shall understand, reduce, and ultimately eliminate embodied carbon in their projects by 2050.
Firm Principal Denise Richards states the importance of joining this industry effort, “We join this commitment because climate change is one of the defining issues of our time, with repercussions on the environment, society, and the global economy. The construction industry alone was responsible for more than a third of global carbon emissions contributing to climate change in 2019. As engineers, we have a responsibility to consider the impact of our work and fight this urgent threat. Engineers must rise to this challenge together – this monumental task demands collaboration, cooperation, and innovation across our industry.”
