Sustainability

Environmental sustainability and planning are central to WestConnex. 

In 2015, the WestConnex Sustainability Strategy was released, detailing our objectives for energy and resource use, sustainability leadership and training and employment opportunities. 

Delivering best practice

The Infrastructure Sustainability Council of Australia (ISCA) is the peak industry body for advancing and assessing sustainability in Australia’s infrastructure. 

ISCA developed and administers the Infrastructure Sustainability (IS) rating scheme, the only comprehensive Australian rating system for evaluating sustainability across design, construction and operation of infrastructure and assets. IS evaluation covers environmental, social, economic and governance aspects of sustainability.

WestConnex is aiming to receive a rating of ‘Excellent’ on the ISCA Rating Tool Scorecard for: 

  • M4 Widening
  • M4 East
  • New M5 
  • M4–M5 Link.
