New Sustainability Rating System Set to Launch


Are you aware of the new sustainability system being developed for infrastructure?

The non-profit Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure (ISI) is developing an infrastructure ranking tool called envISIon. The new ISI rating system will be founded on the “triple bottom line” concept of sustainability, which includes environmental, economic and social considerations. It will include an option for third-party verification, and will be applicable to a wide range of infrastructure projects, from roads and bridges to energy and water systems.

As of earlier this week, Version 1.0 of the sustainable infrastructure ranking tool has been accepted by the ISI Board and, after a sixty day technical review, will be placed on the ISI website for public comment starting in July 2011.
