ICE - Climate change is overlooked in infrastructure projects, civil engineers warn

19 July 2021

New ICE report explores the importance of good design principles within the project lifecycle.

More than 60% of civil engineers feel climate change is not prioritised sufficiently in infrastructure design and delivery, according to new ICE research.

A survey of 900 UK-based ICE members found that more than half (66%) of infrastructure professionals felt greenhouse gas emissions were given less or far less importance than they would like. Some 59% said the same for climate change adaptation. A lack of joined-up thinking (47%) was seen as the primary blocker for both issues, while absence from the project brief (44%) was second.

The survey, carried out in collaboration with the National Infrastructure Commission (NIC) Design Group and based around its Design Principles for National Infrastructure, informs the What Makes Good Design? report published today.

The report presents findings around civil engineers’ awareness and understanding of good design, making a series of recommendations for industry stakeholders and policy decision-makers.
