The Infrastructure Sustainability Council of Australia (ISCA) is a member-based not-for-profit public and private industry council. ISCA is the peak industry body for advancing sustainability outcomes in infrastructure.
ISCA specialise in the facilitation and development of industry led performance based integrated triple-bottom-line governance and reporting frameworks, decision tools and rating tools; generating communities of practise throughout the lifecycle from funding, planning, procurement, design and delivery to operations and maintenance.
The principal means by which ISCA is advance sustainability outcomes in infrastructure is through the development and facilitation of the IS rating scheme. IS rating scheme is an industry-compiled voluntary sustainability performance rating scheme evaluating planning, design, construction and operation of all infrastructure asset classes in all sectors linking industry, communities and commerce beyond regulatory standards.
Since launching in 2012, over $60 billion in infrastructure and civil works projects or assets across Australia and New Zealand have either been certified or registered for an IS rating. The IS rating scheme is Australia’s only comprehensive rating scheme for evaluating sustainability across design, construction and operation of infrastructure.
