maintain a sustainability rating system for civil infrastructure,"
according to its website. This system, Envision™, is a
collaboration between ISI and the Zofnass Program for Sustainable

rating the various benefits of infrastructure projects. "It
evaluates, grades, and gives recognition to infrastructure projects

such as buildings, the Envision™ system is used to evaluate roads,
bridges, pipelines, water treatment systems, airports, and
other civil infrastructure.
