Four years after helping launch the Envision infrastructure sustainability rating tool, a Harvard University graduate school of design program published a guidebook in 2016 for municipalities on how to take an integrated approach to designing and building sustainable infrastructure in concert with urban planning. The new guidebook, titled Planning Sustainable Cities: An Infrastructure Based Approach, provides tools for knitting those individual projects into a seamless and sustainable network.

During this webinar, we will ask a panel of academics and industry leaders to discuss the new tool for infrastructure system performance and how to leverage synergies among buildings and other assets to minimize demands on infrastructure.
