The Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure and the Zofnass Program are excited to announce that we will be moving forward with a virtual workshop in lieu of our previously scheduled event at Harvard.
The purpose of the workshop is to discuss the use of the Envision® sustainability framework in infrastructure projects, how it is influencing policy, standards and planning in cities across the US. The panels will feature a diversity of speakers coming from the public sector, private sector, non-profits, and academia.
The virtual workshop will be hosted on March 23 – March 24 over the course of four 2-hour webinars.

The Institute of Sustainable Infrastructure (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), with the single purpose: to develop and maintain a sustainability rating system for all types of civil infrastructure. Today, ISI counts thousands of individual practitioners, government agencies, companies, and other organizations as members. Located worldwide, these individuals and organizations are actively using Envision®.
The Zofnass Program and ISI have common members and share the same vision with a single objective to promote sustainability working in tandem towards a continuous improvement of Envision®. The Zofnass Program engages in research on the sustainability and resilience of infrastructure and cities, as systems of infrastructure, while ISI manages and advocates for the use of Envision® through education, training, and third-party project verification.
