The City Environmental Institute is a production building located east of the Overpass expansion territory. It was added during an update on 03.11.2014 as part of the timed quest called Earth Day.[1]

A total of 30 assets are needed to complete construction of the City Environmental Institute. This is equivalent to 40 Megabucks sm if one were to buy every asset instead of waiting to receive them from neighbors.
