Envision Sustainable Infrastructure Framework

Envision is a framework that provides guidance to initiate systemic changes in the planning, design and delivery of sustainable and resilient infrastructure.
Envision includes 64 sustainability and resilience indicators, called ‘credits’, organized around five categories: Quality of Life, Leadership, Resource Allocation, Natural World, and Climate and Resilience. These collectively address areas of human wellbeing, mobility, community development, collaboration, planning, economy, materials, energy, water, siting, conservation, ecology, emissions, and resilience. These indicators collectively become the foundation of what constitutes sustainability in infrastructure.

Envision was developed and is managed by the Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure (ISI) in Washington, DC, and has successfully verified numerous infrastructure projects throughout the United States, in Canada, and several other countries around the world.
