Four dimensions of infrastructure sustainability


Infrastructure sustainability is imperative for operation, equity, resilience, recovery, and growth in a challenging environment. 

The latest in our Women in Leadership series, this special briefing will see Australia’s infrastructure and sustainability leaders discuss the contexts in which our infrastructure systems live and operate. 

Join us to unpack the urgent issues that are challenging the sustainability of our infrastructure systems. How do we need to change our thinking, design and strategy to deliver sustainable, equitable, efficient and accessible infrastructure?

  • The four dimensions of sustainability — Economic and financial, social, environmental and institutional.
  • Australia’s social challenge — equity, ageing, health, community.
  • Aligning economic and development strategies with resource, skilling, and mobilisation.
