Infrastructure in a world moving to net zero
Australia is committed to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050. Every part of the economy must focus on its piece to achieve this goal as a nation. Infrastructure is no exception.
Government investment in infrastructure is at record levels. The projects being delivered today will be in operation for decades to come. They form a significant part of the broader construction sector. State and Federal governments shape the vast majority of the nation’s public infrastructure investments. Governments have an obligation to use their position to not only deliver infrastructure and services, but to also drive policy outcomes in support of the nation’s net zero policy goals. Governments have the potential to transform the way the market responds, and as it does, this will flow through to supply chains supporting the infrastructure and services sectors.
