The Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure (ISI) has launched a checklist for its sustainable infrastructure rating system. The Envision Checklist helps users become more familiar with aspects of sustainability in the design of infrastructure projects.

The Checklist can be used as an assessment tool for comparing different sustainability options, or to prepare for more detailed assessment under the Envision Rating system. It includes a series of yes/no questions based on the Envision rating system. The questions are organized into five categories: quality of life, leadership, resource allocation, natural world, and climate and risk.

Checklist results are not verified by the institute, and are not eligible for ISI awards. However, the American Public Works Association and its Center for Sustainability were instrumental in designing the Envision Checklist to ensure its usability for public works professionals and departments.
