Topic: An Introduction to Envision: A Framework for Sustainable Infrastructure
The Envision™ rating system is a project assessment and guidance tool for sustainable infrastructure design. It is an objective framework of criteria and performance achievements that helps users identify ways in which sustainable approaches can be used to plan, design, construct, and operate infrastructure projects. The goal is to improve the sustainable performance of infrastructure projects in terms of the technical performance and also from social, environmental, and economic perspectives. Envision™ provides an opportunity for infrastructure owners and designers to be recognized for using a life cycle approach, working with communities, and using a restorative approach to infrastructure projects. This presentation is a very brief overview of how the Envision™ Program is organized. Envision™ is managed by the Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure (ISI), which was founded by ASCE, APWA, and ACEC.
