Self-paced introduction modules explore the foundations of infrastructure sustainability and the IS Rating Scheme. This is followed by two collaborative facilitated sessions in which learners will explore risks, opportunities, and real project examples of delivering sustainable outcomes. Discuss with likeminded individuals how to implement best practice principles and tools to achieve and drive sustainability outcomes.
