Infrastructure Sustainability Success Stories

Come and hear about success stories from New Zealand infrastructure projects using the IS Rating tool

Sustainability, asset resilience and less carbon intensive modes of operation are increasingly being required in infrastructure projects in Aotearoa New Zealand. From major roading projects to shared pathways, from water to rail infrastructure, and everything in between, projects are seeking to improve sustainability outcomes and create benefits for the environment, community and local economy. Undertaking an IS Rating through the Infrastructure Sustainability Council is one way that projects can push beyond business-as-usual and create tangible examples of best practice and, as such, the number of projects undertaking IS Ratings in Aotearoa New Zealand is growing rapidly.

Collaboration is at the heart of the IS Council's ethos and sharing knowledge is a sustainability fundamental, crucial to understanding the benefits that it can bring, and helping to encourage its continued application on infrastructure projects in New Zealand. Sustainability success stories are emerging across the sector in New Zealand, including demonstrating how the application of the IS Council's rating tools can facilitate more sustainable infrastructure outcomes.

Join us for an event where you will learn more about the recent successes from live New Zealand infrastructure projects and the application of the IS Rating Tool to achieve quadruple bottom line impacts. Hosted by Beca, this event will highlight practical examples of sustainability that have created a range of beneficial outcomes for the environment, community and local economies. Additionally, find out more about the Infrastructure Sustainability Council, how the IS Rating Scheme works and how it can practically make a difference.
