Green Engineering

Green engineering is the design, commercialization, and use of processes and products in a way that reduces pollution, promotes sustainability, and minimizes risk to human health and the environment without sacrificing economic viability and efficiency.

Incorporating green engineering in the early development phase of a process or product pushes us further on our path of reducing environmental impact. Green engineering will allow us to:

  • Holistically use systems analysis and integrate environmental impact assessment tools.
  • Conserve and improve natural ecosystems while protecting human health and well-being.
  • Use life-cycle thinking in all engineering activities.
