The Center for Sustainability provides tools and resources to APWA members and community leaders that allow decision makers to implement more sustainable, economically sound, and socially responsible long-term solutions.

To that end, the Center is pleased to publish its first issue of “Sustainable Practices in Public Works” – a collaborative project with the APWA Technical Committees. 

Sustainable Practices in Public Works, Issue 1. August 2015

The Center is also proud of APWA’s role as a founding partner of the Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure (ISI) which has developed a tool, Envision™, for rating the sustainability of infrastructure projects.  Envision™ provides a holistic framework for the planning of infrastructure projects, helping to evaluate the community, environmental, and economic benefits of all types and sizes of infrastructure projects.

Please feel free to contact me or APWA Director of Sustainability Anne Jackson ( or 800-848-2792, ext. 6750) with ideas or requests for assistance in supporting APWA members embrace their role as "Stewards of Sustainability"!
