Global responsibility needs leadership from the professional bodies which is progressive, effective, and practical. It comprises many elements, and you can find out more detail on each below:
The Academy's work to embed ethical practice across engineering
The Academy's work to lead sustainable engineering practice
Diversity and Inclusion
The Academy’s work to enhance inclusive leadership across the profession
Safety and risk
The Academy’s work to embed safety and risk considerations in the profession
None of these elements exists in isolation, each incorporates elements of the other, as well as other considerations such as cyber security, personal values, and structures for calling out poor practice.
As part of the work on ethics, the Academy is also investigating the feasibility of a Progressive Engineering Leadership Charter, a public statement to which engineering bodies may sign up, covering all these elements.
