Last November 30th, 2017 Cristina Contreras ENV-SP, and Research Associate at the Zofnass Program for Sustainable Infrastructure – Harvard University lead the webinar . This Spanish-taught webinar was sponsored by the World Bank through their Knowledge Platform on Environmentally Sustainable Infrastructure Construction in Latin America and the Caribbean (KPESIC)
This webinar had two main objectives:
(i) Analyze what is the current situation at a global level in the integration and promulgation of sustainable practices in infrastructure projects.
(ii) Provide an overview of the system for quantifying sustainability in Envision infrastructure.
The Envision evaluation system was developed between The Zofnass Program at Harvard University and the Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure (ISI) in 2012 and has now become the standard used in the US and Canada, having also been applied to more than 40 projects in Latin America (in collaboration with the IDB).
This introductory webinar set the foundation for other sector-specific webinars to follow. Coming webinars will look at the application of Envision to other energy, transportation on water projects.
