If current the infrastructure investment status quo continues unaddressed, by 2040 the world will be facing a $15 trillion infrastructure investment gap. Delivering high-quality sustainable infrastructure will be crucial in building an inclusively prosperous future. However, confusion about the definition of sustainable infrastructure, the efficacy of a myriad of available benchmarking standards and the difficulty of providing avenues for investment have prevented increased sustainable infrastructure development. Building on its past work examining the role of private finance in infrastructure development and improved technology adoption in infrastructure throughout the project lifecycle, the Global Future Council on Infrastructure seeks to explore strategies to increase the flow of capital into sustainable infrastructure projects and systems.
