The Institute of Professional Engineers of New Zealand (IPENZ) Presidential Task Force recognized that there was little direction for practical application of sustainability to engineering practice, and developed a context and vision for that application. A set of sustainability principles for engineers was then developed, based on the long term viability of the planet, intra- and inter-generational equity, and a holistic view for projects and engineering practice - integrating environmental, social, and economic issues. Practical tasks and requirements for engineers, including a checklist was then drawn up to provide further direction to practicing engineers.
