About IGS (International Geosynthetics Society)

The International Geosynthetics Society (IGS) is a learned society dedicated to the scientific and engineering development of geotextiles, geomembranes, related products, and associated technologies. It is a non-profit corporation with over 4,000 members from around the globe including corporate, individual and student members and 45 chapters worldwide. Founded in 1977, the IGS believes that geosynthetics can make a fundamental contribution to meeting societal challenges through sustainable technological and engineering solutions. 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 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
