Committee Mission & Charges

The Sustainability and Resilience Committee's mission is to advocate, inform and educate the local design community on the role of structural engineers in the sustainable design process and highlight the importance of incorporating design principles in practice.

The committee aims to collaborate within the SEAOSC network and represent SEAOSC on the topics of sustainability excellence and embodied carbon. The goal is to maintain and grow SEAOSC’s presence and provide input on sustainable design, including participation in green building code development and other industry standards.

CALGreen Embodied Carbon Requirements

The CALGreen 2022 mid-cycle update will include embodied carbon code language that structural engineers must comply with for all non-residential buildings greater than 100,000 sf and schools greater than 50,000 that will be permitted starting July 1, 2024. These updates will have an impact on our plan check process, how we specify our materials and how we collaborate with other consultants on ensuring compliance. The infographic below is designed to help structural engineers navigate the requirements for compliance.
