How do you work out how ‘sustainable’ an infrastructure project is? The Infrastructure Sustainability Council or Australia has an updated tool (IS v2.0) to answer that exact question. ISCA launched this tool in Melbourne in mid July, and are doing a roadshow around Australia to roll out this new tool.
We attended the launch and sent out a series of tweets throughout the presentation.
We are now working with a range of tools, IS v2.0 being one of them. Some other useful tools include Green Star Design and As Built, BESS, MUSIC, & STORM. They are all tools to help us and clients objectively (and consistently from a planning / authority perspective) look at projects from a sustainability viewpoint.
What was interesting was the fact that there are now several new categories: e.g. Green infrastructure and Workforce Sustainability. We are hoping to report back on the use of v2.0 down the track.
