This paper examines the relationship between engineering ethics, sustainable development and the law. Principally, the paper suggests that the first two are not possible without the latter and that professional ethics are the most effective means of ensuring the viability and long-term success of the industry. The paper also strongly intimates that tragedies such as the Challenger disaster could have been avoided if appropriate ethical considerations had been paramount.
From the Paper:"The inter-relationship between engineering ethics, sustainable development and the Law is a complex and very important one. Among other things, this relationship will determine the success and/or failure of the engineering profession to live up to its responsibilities within the broader community. With that in mind, this paper will examine each of the three items mentioned above and delineate the relationship between each and what this relationship means for the engineering community. As will soon become apparent, while the law does not need engineering ethics and sustainable development to endure, engineering ethics and sustainable development need the law (and each other) if they are to endure."
