The Infrastructure Sustainability (IS) Rating Scheme is a voluntary standard for delivering third-party verified sustainability outcomes in infrastructure. An IS Rating is available for all stages from early planning through design and construction, and into operation of assets. Asset categories that can achieve IS rating include transport, water, energy, ports, airports, social infrastructure and green and blue infrastructure. The scheme can assess the sustainability performance of infrastructure at the individual asset level, for portfolios or networks, or even at a regional scale.

The tools cover four sustainability themes – Governance, Economic, Environment and Social, each theme has several credits. A project is scored on sustainability performance in each credit.

The IS scheme is increasingly mandated by procurers across Australia, NZ and beyond (including Waka Kotahi) with over $200B capital value of infrastructure under or having undergone rating, providing a great data set for benchmarking purposes. The tool was assessed by Stanford University as the “most comprehensive and rigorous” rating system of those reviewed.

We develop scalable and adaptable tools bespoke to our clients’ specific challenges to tackle this issue within the public infrastructure sector.

Our practical and tested approach improves the understanding of the whole life carbon footprint of capital projects and maintenance activities. The method aligns with PAS 2080:2018–the international standard for managing infrastructure carbon. The outputs show how carbon can be reduced and managed–along with aligning with GHG Protocols and ISO 14064:2018. This drives low-carbon decision making and helps stakeholders achieve their climate related goals. For more information and case studies –please see our website.
