Decarbonising Infrastructure Delivery – NSW Government Discussion Paper

Infrastructure NSW has  released a Discussion Paper on Decarbonising Infrastructure Delivery for industry comment, and to open a dialogue around the effort required to achieve a net zero construction industry

The principles outlined in the paper provide guidance to reduce embodied emissions in the delivery of public infrastructure across the planning, design and construction phases.

They will be developed into a policy to address the current absence of a clear mandate and lack of incentives for agencies and delivery partners, which has been a key barrier to reducing embodied emissions in infrastructure construction to date.

The principles seek to bring a consistent approach to measuring and managing embodied emissions in public infrastructure.

Infrastructure NSW is also working with the Office of Energy and Climate Change (OECC), the NSW Environment Protection Authority, and the Department of Planning and Environment to determine the appropriate policy and regulatory framework for emissions reduction for the whole infrastructure sector. This will initially focus on the measurement and reporting on embodied emissions before the development of targets.

If you have any enquiries regarding the Discussion Paper please contact industry@infrastructure.nsw.gov.au
