The Center for Sustainability provides tools and resources to APWA members and community leaders that allow decision makers to implement more sustainable, economically sound, and socially responsible long-term solutions. Since its creation in 2008, the Center’s goal has been to help APWA members embrace their role as “Stewards of Sustainability”.

The Center is also is proud of APWA’s role as a founding partner in the Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure (ISI) which has developed a tool, Envision™, for rating the sustainability of infrastructure projects.  Envision™ provides a holistic framework for the planning of infrastructure projects, helping to evaluate the community, environmental, and economic benefits of all types and sizes of infrastructure projects.
Please feel free to contact me or APWA's Director of Sustainability Anne Jackson ( or 800-848-2792, ext 6750) and we look forward to working with you!
