Envision, Taking a Systems Approach to Sustainable Infrastructure
Wednesday, October 5, 2022, at 2:00 – 3:00 ET
Infrastructure creates the groundwork for human activities and human communities. Infrastructure undergirds the structure of the economy. Further, infrastructure ties into other systems, creating interlocking systems. When building new infrastructure, ignoring the system approach means the resulting infrastructure is less effective and less able to tie into other systems. The risk of system failure is high.
Using the Envision rating tool helps identify critical system components and brings system solutions to system problems. This presentation highlights basic-system-theory principles and shows how using Envision works with basic-system principles to create healthier, more sustainable infrastructure.
