The Infrastructure Sustainability Council of Australia (ISCA) held its annual sustainability conference and awards on 17-19 October which recognised projects and organisations who demonstrated a commitment to infrastructure sustainability.

The need for more sustainable infrastructure is continually increasing due to the challenges of urbanisation, changes in climate, population growth, productivity expectations and more.

ISCA has been helping the sector advance its sustainability outcomes through the development of the infrastructure sustainability (IS) rating scheme, which evaluates the performance of infrastructure assets during planning, design, construction and operations.

ISCA CEO, Antony Sprigg, said this year’s ISCA conference and awards had the highest number of speakers, nominations and people in attendance.

There were more than 65 speakers at the conference, of which 49 per cent were female, and more than 200 attendees. There were also 240 people at the awards.

Delegates were able to network with colleagues and gather information on how other organisations are driving sustainability, in addition to finding out about policy, planning, funding and procurement trends.

The fourth annual ISCA Sustainability in Infrastructure Awards Gala Dinner, hosted by comedian and sustainability advocate, Craig Reucassel, gave the sector a chance to come together and celebrate its achievements so far in the creation of more sustainable and smarter infrastructure.

The Awards Gala was part of a three day conference that allowed individuals and organisations to share insights into their asset sustainability initiatives.
