About the Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure
The Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure (ISI) is the hub of a unique community of organizations and individuals involved in the planning, design, construction, and maintenance of infrastructure. Based in Washington, DC, our nonprofit 501 (c) (3) organization was created for a single purpose: to develop and maintain a sustainability rating system for all civil infrastructure.
To further our mission, we provide Envision at no cost to the infrastructure community. We train individuals in its use, after which they can earn the ENV SP credential, and we also offer a project verification and award program.
ISI has grown significantly since its founding, and now counts thousands of individual practitioners, government agencies, companies, and other organizations as members. Located throughout the country, these individuals and organizations are actively using Envision to create and maintain more sustainable infrastructure. We invite you to join today.
ISI was founded by the American Public Works Association (APWA), the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), and the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) and operates under their oversight.
Envision is the product of a joint collaboration between the Zofnass Program for Sustainable Infrastructure at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design and the Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure. The Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure and the Zofnass Program at Harvard University continue their collaboration towards further developing Envision, for disseminating Envision worldwide, and in research projects related to the sustainability of infrastructure and the sustainability of cities.
