Title: Recommended Practice for Addressing Sustainability, Environmental Stewardship and Climate Change Challenges in Professional Practice

Scope: This recommended practice provides a framework for exercising sound professional judgement, to be applicable to all aspects of professional practice including engineering, technical practice and technological innovation. This recommended practice encourages and helps engineers, scientists, technologists, and other professionals consider the implications of climate change and the need for sustainable development and environmental stewardship, including impacts on societies, in their practice, and to create a clear record of the outcomes of those considerations.
