Introduction

The Infrastructure Sustainability Council of Australia (ISCA) is the peak industry body for advancing sustainability in Australia’s infrastructure.  ISCA is a member-based, not-for-profit industry (public and private) council. ISCA’s mission is ‘Improving the productivity & liveability of industry & communities through sustainability in infrastructure’.

ISCA developed and administers the Infrastructure Sustainability (IS) rating scheme.  IS is Australia’s only comprehensive rating system for evaluating sustainability across design, construction and operation of infrastructure.  IS evaluates the sustainability (including environmental, social, economic and governance aspects) of infrastructure projects and assets.

The tool covers the methodology required to secure a rating for a range of infrastructure types.
