Employees Embrace ISI, Envision™ Program
Freese and Nichols has pushed the boundaries of sustainability in many areas for decades. From our participation in national sustainability programs to our initiatives in good stewardship of resources, our employees work hard to offer sustainable solutions for our clients’ project and program needs.
In 2012, Freese and Nichols joined the Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure (ISI) as a charter member. ISI is an organization focused on creating and maintaining an infrastructure sustainability rating system, the Envision™ Rating System, which is used to evaluate a project’s rank in five categories including quality of life, leadership, resource allocation, natural world, and climate and risk.
Freese and Nichols has been recognized as a forward-thinking firm that embraces the collaborative approaches embodied within the Envision™ program. We have more than 30 credentialed Envision™ Sustainability Professionals, many of whom actively serve on ISI committees, and one ISI Trainer, someone who coordinates and facilitates ENV SP training workshops to help participants qualify to take the ENV SP credentialed exam.
Participation in sustainability programs, such as ISI, is something we value and we encourage others to do the same. If you are interested in learning more about ISI, the Envision™ program or becoming a Sustainability Professional, contact Trish Hatley.
