Business Case Guide

Developing a Business Case for Sustainability Initiatives in Infrastructure

The purpose of this Guide is to assist infrastructure industry practitioners to develop a convincing business case for a sustainability initiative. It has been developed to support practitioners in the preparation of a business case appropriate to the scale and type of a proposed initiative and its stakeholders. The aim is to assist in conveying both the tangible and intangible impacts of a proposed initiative in a language that will resonate with decision makers.

Case Study Guidelines

Top tips on helping you to develop a case study for a project.

Case studies are important documents for promoting impacts, for knowledge sharing, and for education and research. IS Case studies can be used for demonstrating the successful implementation of the Infrastructure Sustainability (IS) Rating scheme on a project, demonstrating the success and learnings from specific sustainability initiatives, and summarising the sustainability outcomes achieved on a project.

Guide for Projects Seeking Dual Certification

This guide is intended to be used by industry, government, operators and asset owners applying both the Infrastructure Sustainability (IS) Design & As Built and Green Star – Design & As Built rating schemes.
