Awards showcase sustainability in infrastructure projects

The infrastructure industry continues to set new benchmarks in sustainability, shown by the exceptional achievements recognised at the Infrastructure Sustainability Council Gala Awards 2022.

Held in Sydney, the awards celebrated sustainability best practices across Australia and New Zealand.

Infrastructure Sustainability Council (ISC) is the peak body for infrastructure sustainability, advocating for the delivery of cultural, social, economic and environmental benefits in all infrastructure projects.

Infrastructure Sustainability Council Chief Executive Officer Ainsley Simpson said many organisations recognise this as a crucial time to prioritise sustainable development.

“We’re embarking on a decade of rapid transformation, and our members know that sustainable development is both a responsibility and an opportunity. They are taking action to address challenges and move forward sustainably.”

Infrastructure Sustainability Council Chief Delivery Officer Patrick Hastings congratulated the winners for their outstanding work and the positive outcomes achieved in their communities.

The projects nominated for this year’s awards demonstrate the industry’s commitment to attracting and retaining a skilled workforce, strengthening communities and managing waste, energy and carbon emissions,” Mr Hastings said. “The Council received submissions across the 10 categories of awards, each demonstrating innovation and ingenuity to contribute to sustainable development goals.

“These awards show others in the infrastructure industry what is possible.”

The award categories for 2022 recognise organisational and individual achievements across a range of categories, including excellence in social, governance, economic and environmental outcomes, as well as outstanding individual contribution to
the sector.
