Professional Practice - Environment

The Environment Committee's role (Terms of Reference) is to enhance APEGGA's awareness of environmental issues that impact the practice of the professions and to provide input on related matters.

The committee issued a revised Environmental Practice Guideline that reflects significant changes to environmental standards and practices in Alberta, including the concept of sustainability. It is also supporting the Canadian Council of Professional Engineers, Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation Action Plan, through a series of articles in The PEGG, along with professional development sessions at APEGGA's Annual Conference.

The committee will follow up its 2003 position statement on professional involvement in drinking water quality with articles in The PEGG on professionals roles. It has been working with Alberta Environment to establish “specialist sign-off criteria for upstream oil and gas reclamation/remediation certificates.
