Envision is an outline that consists of 64 sustainability and resilience indicators called credits. These credits are organized around five categories: Quality of Life, Leadership, Resource Allocation, Natural World, and Climate and Resilience. Collectively the five categories report areas of human wellbeing, mobility, community development, collaboration, planning, economy, materials, energy, water, sitting, conservation, ecology, emissions, and resilience. As a whole, this represents the foundation of what constitutes sustainability in infrastructure. design and process that goes into drafting a residential structure.
