Research on sustainable structural design (SSD) has increased significantly over the past decade. Having established the importanceof structural engineering in sustainable development, researchers and practitioners have developed sustainable design strategies to address theimpact of structural systems on the environment, economy, and society. Nevertheless, many studies have pointed out the inadequacy of existingassessment tools and the lack of overall understanding regarding the role of civil engineers and structural engineers in achieving sustainable goals.The purpose of this paper is to provide a comprehensive state-of-the-art overview of SSD, focusing on design strategies, parameters for SSD, andthe role of SSD in Green Building rating systems and building codes. First, the authors will clearly identify research results in this field and thenpoint out the biggest issues when choosing SSD strategies and evaluation parameters. To conclude, this paper will discuss the characteristic tasksof structural engineers with a particular emphasis on the concepts of structural performances, design service-life, and probabilistic approach.
