The partnership delivers heavy infrastructure civil projects to promote social, economic and environmental sustainability for communities
With the partnership, Skanska has committed to aligning the delivery of heavy infrastructure civil projects with efforts to ensure the social, economic and environmental sustainability of the communities where they are built. Skanska’s Chief Sustainability Officer Beth Heider will work with the ISI Board of Directors, and Skanska USA Civil Vice President of Environmental Health and Safety Paul Haining, as well as Skanska’s National Safety Health and Environmental Management System (SHEMS) Director Nicholas Bishop, will both provide technical expertise to spread the adoption of the ISI Envision rating system within their areas of responsibility in construction, civil infrastructure, public-private partnerships, and commercial development initiatives.
ISI has agreed to provide opportunities for all Skanska employees to receive training and credentialing in the Envision Sustainability Professionals (ENVSPs) credentialing program. When credentialed, these employees will be able to document and rate sustainability aspects of infrastructure projects in collaboration with ISI’s Envision infrastructure rating system. With the Envision credentialing effort, Skanska will continue its commitment to embed sustainability throughout its infrastructure practices.
