Geosynthetics make infrastructure more sustainable. They extend the service life of roads, reduce the use of aggregates, conserve and protect water, minimize land disturbance and control soil erosion.

Sustainability is at the heart of what we do. IGS publications, events, lectures and research highlight the many ways that geosynthetics contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals.

More information on sustainability can be found on the IGS website via this link. On this page you can also find the so called ''Did you know'' items, with interesting information on the sustainability of geosynthetics.
