Professor Richard Fenner, Charles Ainger and former Engineering for Sustainable Development MPhil student Judith Sykes have recently released the updated second edition of their book Sustainable Infrastructure: Principles into Practice with ICE Publishing.

The book is a practical handbook to help engineers deliver sustainable responses to the urgent challenges the infrastructure sector faces. It includes guidance on the UN Sustainable Development Goals, the circular economy in construction, the use of nature-based solutions and flexible design for adaptation as well as explaining key tools for carbon management, infrastructure resilience, measuring biodiversity net gain and social value appraisal. Real-life case studies and practical examples are included for each delivery stage, across a range of sectors and project size. 

It is available from ICE Publishing both in print and as an eBook.
