In order to deliver the UN Sustainable Development Goals and support the expanding human population, an estimated $90 trillion in infrastructure investment worldwide is required between 2015 and 2030 to replace ageing infrastructure in developed economies. This is also needed to facilitate the growth of developing countries and emerging markets. It is therefore imperative that investors are enabled to direct capital to sustainable and resilient infrastructure projects that will deliver optimal outcomes both for people and for ecosystems on which our societies depend. Join us as we discuss the need for effective, reliable, and credible standards and assessment tools to help us understand the environmental, social and governance performance of the infrastructure projects in which we invest.
