At AMPP, Materials Sustainability means helping our stakeholders steward the world’s limited natural and fiscal resources by providing platforms for sharing, educating, and problem-solving promoting durability of physical assets, maintaining resilient and efficient infrastructure, and strengthening the people and organizations who are committed to this work.

AMPP’s role and responsibility in the practice of our sustainability is about (or focused on):
Emphasizing and employing safe and reliable work practices in the use of materials.
Fostering an enterprising culture that innovates, optimizes, and leverages novel technologies and business practices.
Advocating the importance of infrastructure asset durability and resiliency throughout society.
Globally partnering to leverage local experience towards holistic solutions through collaborative problem solving across industries, organizations & regions.
Exercising stewardship in the design, building, operating, maintaining, and retirement of physical assets and equipment for long term reliability, safety, efficiency, and fiscal responsibility.
Cultivating talent communities that foster the values, skills, and experience necessary to build and maintain organizational performance in materials stewardship and business leadership.
Advocating the importance of robust budget planning necessary to support the sustainability of resilient and efficient infrastructure.

Get involved

We believe sustainability is a shared responsibility and that collaboration is the key to making a real impact. We invite you to join our efforts and participate in our Sustainability relevant Standards Committees and Technical Communities of Interest. Together, we can drive attention to safe and reliable work practices, foster an innovative culture, and encourage asset durability and resiliency throughout society. Share your insights and ideas at our conference symposia, or let your voice be heard by sharing insights and feedback. We need help driving the sustainability agenda, so your involvement is crucial. Join us today and be part of the positive change we are creating for a sustainable future.

Technical Communities of Interest

Carbon Capture and Storage
The Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) Community of Interest is a group of people assembled for the aim of investigating phase behavior, corrosion mechanisms and rates, and materials selection in CO2 separation, transport, and storage.
Join community

Technical Communities of Interest

As we are transitioning to hydrogen and hydrogen natural gas blends, considering that these technologies are not yet matured, there is a need to create a TCI that can identify and address challenges with the this industry.
Join community

Technical Communities of Interest

Renewable Energy
The Renewable Energy Technical Community of Interest is a group of people who have come together for the purpose of furthering a common cause by sharing wisdom, knowledge, information, and/or data  to investigate problems, acquire service experience, exchange information, and prepare reports on the use of materials in renewable energy systems. 
Join community

Standards Committee

SC 26 - Carbon Capture, Alternative Fuels, and Energy Storage
Develops and maintains standards, guides, and reports related to materials protection and performance in carbon capture, utilization, and storage and in alternative fuel and energy storage technologies including hydrogen, biofuels, non-fossil and low-carbon fuels, thermal and chemical energy storage, and related technologies.
