About the IEEE Environmental Engineering Initiative
The IEEE Environmental Engineering Initiative intends to create an interdisciplinary forum for the community interested in the area of environmental engineering, including components in various S/Cs which are using our technologies and methodologies but are not yet embraced by our IEEE communities.

Through the initiative, the IEEE community will:

  • Share experiences and efforts
  • Improve interdisciplinary vision
  • Reach out to under-served technical segments
  • Embrace and empower the whole community working on environmental engineering
  • Expand knowledge dissemination (conferences, publications, curated collections, webinars, educational activities)
  • Contribute to expanding people networking
  • Contribute to supporting standardization activities
