ASCE Announces the Donald V. Roberts, Global Sustainabilty Award

Don Roberts’ experience as a consulting civil and environmental engineer, for over 60 years, was a great asset to the geoprofessionals. He was a past ASFE president (1985-1986) and contributed in many ways, for many years, to ASFE/GBA.

Mr. Roberts was responsible for major geotechnical investigations and environmental studies for 500 projects located in 20 countries. He was a pioneer
in developing methods to analyze the environmental impacts of projects prior to the passage of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). He also managed programs to investigate and clean up nuclear waste sites for the US Department of Energy.

ASCE is establishing the Donald Van Norman Roberts Global Sustainability Award to honor Don Roberts for his significant contributions to the profession and his leadership in sustainability. Once established, the award will consist of a cash prize awarded annually to engineering professionals or to engineering students for papers on sustainability or climate change that are published in a peer reviewed ASCE journal.
