The ASME/Autodesk study on sustainability was a comprehensive two-part survey gauging the opinions of members of ASME on matters of general sustainability and sustainable technologies. Mechanical engineers and the companies for whom they work are engaged with sustainability issues and green technologies, but continue to wrestle with how to turn general goals into competitive products and manufacturing processes. More than two-thirds of respondents say their organizations are "somewhat" or "extremely" involved in sustainability. A small minority of respondents believe money spent on sustainability is wasted, since they do not believe humans are causing global warming. When asked about the hurdles to greater investment in sustainable manufacturing, many respondents cite cost issues. One respondent mentions the cost of effort to evaluate and implement sustainable practices and cites lack of common guidance to measure sustainability. ASME's survey shows that companies are investing in sustainability. It's just a matter of time before their successes -- and failures -- emerge.
