Introduction:

Developed by a joint collaboration between the Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure (ISI) and the Zofnass Program for Sustainable Infrastructure at Harvard University, the Envision™ rating system provides a holistic framework for evaluating and rating the community, environmental, and economic benefits of all types and sizes of infrastructure projects. This webcast will feature an understanding of how water and wastewater utilities are using the rating system to promote sustainability on their projects.

Bill Bertera, the Executive Director of ISI will kick off the webcast with an overview of ISI. The structure of the Envision rating system will be briefly summarized by Tom Pedersen before hearing case studies from New York, California, Nebraska, and Washington state. The webcast will close with a discussion of the activities of the Envision Task Force of the WEF Sustainability Community of Practice and the upcoming Envision activities at WEFTEC.
