Natural disasters and environmenally-friendly buildings

I'm currently a senior in high school and I am thinking about majoring in environmental engineering in college. What I want to know is if this degree will allow me to have jobs that help in either natural disaster clean-up or helping to design more environmentally friendly buildings. Also, is there a better major if I want to pursue either of those option?
