Cardno new member of Infrastructure Sustainability Council of Australia (ISCA)

We are proud to have been welcomed as members of the Infrastructure Sustainability Council of Australia (ISCA).

Cardno was recently unanimously approved as a member by the ISCA Board. Our membership is the second step in our development of a more sustainable infrastructure practice across our Asia-Pacific region.

The first was the appointment of our new Environment and Sustainability Director, Nicole Neal, last month.

“Our plan to build the environment and sustainability practice in the Asia-Pacific region is underway, and a key element of our approach will be to work alongside and collaborate with other industry leaders as part of our ISCA membership.”

“Cardno’s environment and engineering practices are already leaders in delivering high-quality technical expertise to clients in these industries. We’re serious about building our sustainable infrastructure credentials to strengthen that expertise,” said Nicole.

ISCA is the peak industry body for advancing sustainability outcomes in infrastructure. It establishes communities of practice around sustainability in infrastructure; facilitates and promotes industry forums and research; and developed and administers the Infrastructure Sustainability (IS) rating scheme, a comprehensive rating system for evaluating sustainability across, design, construction and operation of infrastructure.

“Active involvement with industry bodies such as ISCA is crucial in Cardno contributing to genuine industry challenges and creating more sustainable infrastructure.”

We are also proud to support ISCA’s Annual General Meeting dinner, which takes place in Sydney tonight.

“It’s an opportunity for us to discuss key needs in the industry and our business plans directly with some key infrastructure industry leaders and clients, and explore ways in which Cardno, our clients and the communities we operate in can benefit from our membership,” said Nicole.

Nicole Neal was the recipient of the Individual Leadership in Infrastructure Sustainability Award at the 2017 Annual Infrastructure Sustainability Conference and Awards Gala Dinner, ISCA’s annual event, on 18 October.
