Sustainability in Infrastructure Projects in Colombia

Sustainability in infrastructure projects is a complex concept, and it is given not only by the country where the project is undergoing but by the project itself, consumers and lenders. Colombia has not been the exception and the rise of sustainable infrastructure is noticeable. According to the G20’s Global Infrastructure Hub, Colombia has an infrastructure gap of USD 100 billion until 2040 (GIH, 2018c) (USD 339 billion in investment needed with USD 238 billion in investment trends) – an average of USD 5 billion invested per year.

In this webinar, we discuss sustainable trends in conversation with experienced C-level executives in Colombia and abroad.

Discussion points:

– Environmentally driven projects that go beyond the minimum requirements included in its license and permits with the National authorities (ANLA, Regional Autonomous Corporations, Municipalities).
