ASCE Industry Leaders Council Urges Updates to Standards Due to Climate Crisis

The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Issues & Advocacy group and the ASCE Industry Leaders Council (ILC) strongly urges interim updates to ASCE Standards, in order to keep pace with climate change and extreme weather. In response to our climate crisis, to date the ASCE issued numerous formal Position Statements (PS) such as PS 360 – Climate Change, PS 488 – Greenhouse Gases, and PS 500 – Resilient Infrastructure Initiatives. The position statements outline general opinions of the ASCE, but regrettably do not directly describe the immediate demand for the ASCE to address climate change and extreme weather in standard documents. On balance, a select set of cities and agencies across the U.S. already developed numerous custom standards to account for our climate crisis, including sea level rise (SLR) and extreme rainfall.
