Especially over the last 20 years, engineers have become far more attuned to the environmental impacts of their work. While engineers have a first order responsibility to follow environmental regulations, and to try to minimize raw material and energy consumption and limit pollution in their work as individuals, environmental issues have also become an important second order concern for engineers, i.e., a concern of how engineers and engineering as a whole change the world.
