Climate

Engineers and Geoscientists British Columbia has undertaken several initiatives to explore the impact of climate change on professional engineering and geoscience practice.

Members of Engineers and Geoscientists BC, through the Climate Change Advisory Group, advise Council on these matters on an ongoing basis.

Climate Change Advisory Group

The Climate Change Advisory Group is responsible for advising Council on matters related to climate change and adaptation. This includes recommending appropriate policy development, providing input into practice guideline development and revision, and recommending appropriate responses to requests for association support.

Climate Change Information Portal

The climate change adaptation tools and resources listed in this portal aim to support professionals in incorporating a consideration of climate change into their practice.

Engineers Canada Survey on Climate Change

In 2007, a national survey on climate change, targeted to infrastructure engineers, was conducted by the Canadian Standards Association on behalf of Engineers Canada. The survey helped determine engineers’ level of knowledge and awareness of the impacts of a changing climate on built infrastructure at the time. In 2012, a follow‐up survey was conducted to understand what changes in attitudes, awareness, and actions have occurred since 2007. The 2012 survey also helps identify what engineers are doing now to adapt infrastructure to the impacts of a changing climate. The survey, conducted between December 2011 and February 2012, was targeted at professional engineers across Canada in five categories of built infrastructure: water, transportation, energy, buildings, and resource extraction/processing.
