The following initiatives are proposed for further discussion:
While environmental management is taking center stage in the marine industry, today's naval architectural and marine engineering college curricula only pay limited attention to these concepts. The panel will contact educational institutions and perform a review of their practices and assist institutions in developing a minimal standard for environmental management education.
Panel members will provide NAME students with design feedback on the environmental management aspects of their student design projects.
SNAME Text review
The panel will review the relevant sections of SNAME's classic texts with regard to environmental management aspects and provide comments and updates for subsequent versions of those texts.
Environmental management and its core goals of sustainability and environmental stewardship are central to engineering ethics and this panel's goal is to advance these concepts to the highest level and at the greatest possible speed within the profession.
