Sustained work


Recently the Professional Engineering Institutions in north-west England started a sustainability joint venture.

This arises out of work with the Regional Development Agency in consultations on the regional development strategy and the regional sustainability framework.

The PEI recognises that sustainable products, processes and services are vital to maintaining planetary systems and that engineers individually and collectively are in the privileged position of being able to help enable them.

There is also growing evidence that companies incorporating sustainability assessment are growing faster than traditionally managed ones.

This is another important issue as far as UK development and engineering employment is concerned.

Interested individuals and institutions should visit our embryo website at Comments, ideas and offers of facilities are welcome.

While this is a regional venture we would like to see it assume national and cross sector dimensions.

Derek Deighton, Professional Engineering Institutions (PEI), Northwest
