‘The Infrastructure Sustainability Rating System and its use by Councils’ Antony Sprigg CEO • April 2016
Sustainability needs to be sustainable!! Street Artist 'Megx' Creates Giant Lego Bridge in Germany by Christopher Jobson on July 5, 2012
Calibration conversation… Sustainability is TBL, not just environmental Sustainability adds value not cost Addressing sustainability reduces risk IS rating scheme is a community of practice IS rating scheme may increase productivity
Holistic approach in sustainability Benchmark, evaluate and gap analyse for TBL aspects in the business case for a new infrastructure project. Identifies and incorporates high value sustainability considerations early and informs procurement. Inform/challenge master plan through TBL performance assessment of the proposed underpinning infrastructure. A ‘bottom up’ applied sustainability tool and management framework which can be used to benchmark asset performance and inform continuous improvement. A TBL performance framework to assess and identify sustainability objectives, targets and innovations pretender by client and as part of tender response by tenderers. An integrated framework which encourages ‘centralising’ of sustainability ownership, increasing the likelihood of unlocking design solutions which can meet both fit for purpose, cost and sustainability whole of life expectations and outcomes. An industry developed best practise standard for applied sustainability in construction associated with civil and infrastructure projects.
Social LicenceCSR Initiative at the Harvard Kennedy School, 2014 Types of costs from lost social licence: Security, Project modification, Risk management, Material damage, Lost productivity, Capital, Personnel, Reputation, Redress MELBOURNE'S East West Link project has been declared dead for a price of $339 million, but the true cost for Victorian taxpayers may be up to $900 million. Apr 15, 2015 A fundamental social and economic issue, where stakeholders often leverage environmental impacts (real or perceived) for personal/political gain.
Risk of Climate ChangeThe Climate Council, 2014 • Australia’s infrastructure has been built for the climate of the 20th century and is unprepared for rising sea level. • A sea-level rise of only 0.5 m would, on average, mean that a 1-in-a-100 year flood—a very rare event today—would occur every few months. • Sea level rise of 1.1m would put $67B of road and rail assets at risk.
Project ProductivityDeloitte Access Economics, 2015 • There are big opportunities for more efficient procurement • Reduce the costs of projects by 5.4%, comprised of: • direct price increases of 3.6% • indirect price increases of 1.5% from reduced competition • inefficient costs of bidding worth 0.3% of project prices • Reduce delays to projects by 7% • Improve the quality of projects by 7% • Governance sustainability issue primarily associated with poor decision making, lack of transparency misaligned roles and responsibilities resulting in reduced productivity. An opportunity to integrate project excellence.

Improvements for Local Government Small project customisations in 25 of 44 credits Benchmarking operations Program approach for operational assets and capital works programs
Small Projects Specific guidance for small projects (<$20m) Customisations in 25 of 44 credits Adjusts the credits to suit small projects Highlighted throughout Technical Manual Benefits – reduced evidence burden, enhanced value add
Weightings Assessment Addresses concerns about whether the default weightings are suitable for all infrastructure Supports identification of the most material sustainability issues Results in adjustments to weightings within the tool to tailor and focus the tool to the project/assets stakeholders and context Weightings transfer to the scorecard Benefits – tailored approach, enhanced value add
Scaled credits Ene-1, Wat-1, Wat-2, Mat-1, Lan-1, Eco-1 V1.1 had (up to) three fixed Levels for credits V1.2 scaled credits allow for fractions of Levels to be achieved on a sliding scale Provides encouragement to pursue every improvement opportunity possible Benefit - enhanced value add
How is the IS rating scheme relevant to asset management? Key aspects: Performance benchmarking and reporting Risk management Sustainability and asset management systems Business case for sustainability initiatives
Setting KPIs and benchmark reporting Identifying and setting KRAs and KPIs Consistently benchmarking performance Effective corporate social responsibility Identifying and managing initiatives
Holistic risk management Providing a collaborative model Facilitating better decision making Whole of life approach Facilitating development of next steps
Incorporating sustainability into asset management systems Sustainability is often seen as an add on to existing systems … but should be seen as: Efficiencies across the quadruple bottom line Improve payback periods by applying a holistic view Support continuous improvement and improved service provisions Extend asset life
Case studies of IS certified projects and assets Case studies
Auckland Airport IS Operations Pilot Asset owner is using IS Operations to benchmark current airport assets to establish objectives and targets for on-going maintenance and operations and also to inform the new airport master plan.
Madden and Pakenham St Road UpgradeIS Design rating $13m Waterfront Auckland applying IS to 2 early smaller road and drainage projects. Looking at how IS can be used to feed into broader development sustainability objectives. Influencing procurement and asset handover considerations. Adding value corporately.
