International engineering and project management company, AMEC, has announced its Charter Membership of the Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure (ISI).
The company has committed to accredit 100 professionals as Envision Sustainability Professionals (ENV SP). These professionals will be able to document sustainability accomplishments in AMEC’s client projects under the Envision rating system.
“AMEC is strongly committed to sustainability in every aspect of our business,” said Sarah Hansen, director of sustainability for the Americas, in a statement. “This membership is one of the many things that we do that reinforce our sustainability commitments by living our values.”
In 2012, Envision was launched by ISI as a new comprehensive sustainable infrastructure rating system to assist planners, designers, owners and builders to plan, construct, operate and rate infrastructure to increasing levels of sustainability and resource efficiency. All ENV SPs are ISI-credentialed practitioners who use the Envision rating system as a guide to address triple bottom line sustainability dimensions in the design, construction and operation of an infrastructure project.
AMEC recently won a Silver Class Sustainability Award 2014 from the RobecoSAM Global Sustainability Index.
