Although this issue set out to look more broadly at the future of the structural engineering profession, events during its development – specifically the declaration of a climate emergency by structural engineers and other built environment professionals – have seen sustainability and climate action take a prominent role in many articles.

This foreword briefly summarises the commitments that declaring engineers have made and considers first steps to build action plans that will support these commitments.
