Our powerful proposition: Pivoting to sustainable infrastructure is one of the biggest levers we have to tackle our toughest challenges – from climate change to inequitable prosperity to crippling cultural divisions – and together build a thriving future for communities of every kind.
Our mission is to catalyze state-of-the-art sustainable infrastructure solutions that help communities of every kind thrive economically, socially, and environmentally.
The Center for Sustainable Infrastructure (CSI) is a Pacific Northwest-based non-profit dedicated to building a thriving, sustainable future of broadly shared prosperity in communities all across our region through integrated infrastructure solutions.
Quality infrastructure matters to every community, in every part of the Pacific Northwest. Community infrastructure is the lifeblood of our local economies and shapes much of our daily lives – providing us with clean water and air, effective transportation and communication, heat and power for home, work and industry, and more.
We spend billions of dollars every year to operate, maintain, rebuild and expand these essential systems - it's time we ensure these investment decisions work better for all communities.
