In September 2015, Sydney Motorway Corporation released a Sustainability Strategy for Westconnex, detailing measurable objectives for energy and resource use, sustainability leadership and training and employment opportunities.
Our vision is for WestConnex to be a sustainable, high quality and transformational project for the people of Sydney and NSW. Exhibiting innovative design excellence, it will be sensitively integrated into the natural and built environment, help connect communities and contribute to the future liveability of Sydney.
Delivering best practice
The Infrastructure Sustainability Council of Australia (ISCA) is the peak industry body for evaluating and advancing sustainability in Australia’s infrastructure. ISCA takes a holistic view of sustainability, encompassing environmental, social, economic and governance.
ISCA developed and now administers the Infrastructure Sustainability rating scheme, the only comprehensive Australian rating system for evaluating sustainability across design, construction and operation of infrastructure.
Sydney Motorway Corporation aims to receive ‘Excellent’ on the ISCA Rating Tool Scorecard on its WestConnex projects.
