Summary:

As cities continue to grow and the effects of climate change become more prevalent, the need for sustainable and resilient infrastructure becomes paramount. Envision is about supporting higher performance through more sustainable choices in infrastructure development. The framework provides a flexible system of criteria and performance objectives to aid decision makers and help project teams identify sustainable approaches during planning, design and construction that will continue throughout the projects operations and maintenance and end-of life phases. 

Envision not only asks are we doing the project right, but also are we doing the right project?
