The Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) is the premier global professional society representing the science of applied geophysics and, therefore, has an important role to play in promoting a better understanding about sustainability in geophysics.
Geoscientists have the expertise to contribute to solutions for many of Earth’s greatest challenges. SEG’s members are pioneering these efforts by highlighting the role of geophysicists in advancing sustainability.
- SEG is the sole sponsor of The Geophysical Sustainability Atlas created to map various ways the science can be practiced and applied to deliver value to the world in the context of the 17 United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) (United Nations, n.d.).
- SEG sponsors Geoscience in Action: Advancing Sustainable Development, a free resource from UNESCO and AGU that offers a practical roadmap to illustrate how geoscientists can apply their talents and skills to solve the world’s environmental, social, and economic problems.

- SEG’s Sustainability Committee is working to grow awareness about sustainability among SEG members and the geoscience community.
