Sustainability and the Climate Emergency: The Role of the Engineer

Few credible scientists now seriously question the reality of man-made climate change and the devastating impact it’s having on our world. According to the recent UN report ‘United in Science 2021’ we’ve already reached a tipping point in the fight to protect the planet for future generations. The COVID 19 pandemic caused a slight slowdown as the world ground to a halt for several months, but that slowdown has been rapidly caught up, with greenhouse gases, including CO2, containing to increase. There’s little indication of a greener recovery.

Happy 35th Birthday!

We had hoped, like everyone else, that last year would be the only birthday we would have to spend in lockdown. Unfortunately it hasn’t quite worked out that way and like so many others, we have found ourselves spending another one under restrictions. Even though we can’t celebrate the way we would have liked, it’s been 35 years since David Narro set up the Practice and we certainly couldn’t just let the occasion pass by!
