IEEE’s SusTech Initiative

The IEEE SusTech Initiative seeks to contribute technical expertise and solutions to address sustainability challenges, including climate change. This initiative is growing rapidly and new volunteers are always welcome.

In-person and virtual workshops are offered free of charge throughout the year. These fascinating, interactive workshops engage technical professionals and academics from around the world to map technology development needs according to gaps identified by the work of the Planet Positive 2030 Compendium.

The IEEE SusTech Initiative is supported by The IEEE Future Directions Committee (FDC). FDC seeks to identify, develop, and promote projects that are value-added for IEEE and its members, bringing together multiple Societies and Councils to provide broad and deep perspectives on a particular topic, application, or technology. These projects range from short-term activities to reach a specific goal to Future Directions Initiatives seeking longer-term cross-collaborative engagement among industry, academia, and government striving to develop and deploy various future technologies.
