Urgent action is required to shift towards low-carbon, climate-resilient infrastructure, recognising that infrastructure is a fundamental building block for a vibrant, inclusive, and connected society.
As the peak infrastructure sustainability body across Australia and New Zealand, Infrastructure Sustainability Council of Australia (ISCA) recognises the need for an effective and progressive response to the urgent threat of climate change on the basis of the best available scientific knowledge. “Infrastructure contributes up to 70% of Australia’s annual emissions and therefore has a key role in enabling Australia’s net zero emissions goal,” said ISCA Chair, Alison Rowe.
“Aligned with our purpose, ISCA will support our industry in shifting to low-carbon, climate-resilient infrastructure, recognising that infrastructure is a fundamental factor in determining our region’s future well-being. This week we are making our position clear and committing to five levels of action, which we will measure and report against annually" said ISCA CEO Ainsley Simpson.
