The future is riding on infrastructure.
Envision helps practitioners meet the challenge.

In communities across the country, infrastructure projects provide a wide array of challenges — from addressing community needs to meeting highly technical specifications. Public works professionals, engineers, planners, contractors, policy experts, investors, and others are using Envision to overcome these challenges, one sustainable project at a time. This unique resource allows them to create projects that deliver value to their communites for decades — in environmental terms, as well as improvements in quality of life and other areas.

The enduring legacy of sustainable infrastructure.


At the Institute for Sustainable infrastructure, our mission is to help communities build more sustainable infrastructure projects. Our nonprofit organization was created for a single purpose: to develop and maintain a sustainability rating system for all civil infrastructure.

In collaboration with then Zofnass Program for Sustainable Infrastructure at the Harvard

University Graduate School of Design, we've developed Envision, a state-of-the-art resource that helps professionals plan and execute more sustainable infrastructure projects.

Provided at no cost to practitioners, Envision is a plain-language guide that combines a best practices library, field-proven checklists for infrastructure projects of every size and type, and a comprehensive sustainability rating system that helps infrastructure owners gain recognition for their well-planned and executed projects.
