The purpose of this paper is to discuss sustainable engineering practices within modern America. Companies are now taking to sustainable practices by implementing them into their own models in ways that’s beneficial towards society, themselves, and the environment. Through discussion of how this is managed, this paper will break down the steps through five stages. First, a statistical analysis will be performed based on a percentage of sustainable practices that have led to positive outcomes. Next, scientific and engineering principles will be discussed and applied to the current topic, citing how specific science is involved and how an engineering method could be implemented in its place. Furthermore, the professional responsibilities that are expected of companies will be viewed. Finally, this paper will conclude with an overview of the ethical responsibilities that follow with sustainable practices.
