Infrastructure Sustainability Council of Australia (ISCA)

From the outset, Westport has been committed to delivering a sustainable port and supply chain strategy. To demonstrate this commitment, Westport became the first Australasian project to register a strategic planning project for an Infrastructure Sustainability (IS) Version 2.0 Planning Rating with the Infrastructure Sustainability Council of Australia (ISCA).

Westport is working in close partnership with ISCA to demonstrate the potential benefits of the IS rating scheme in the strategic project planning phase (i.e. before the solution to an identified problem has been defined). It is in this early stage of planning that the integration of sustainability goals and initiatives can be readily identified and provide the foundations for the project to yield significant, tangible benefits at the delivery stage.

United Nations Sustainable Development Goals

The United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are an internationally agreed upon set of 17 interconnected targets making up the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The targets are designed to achieve a better and more sustainable future by addressing the global challenges we face including those relating to environmental degradation and sustainable cities and communities. The aim of these targets is for organisations to adopt and act on the SDGs to achieve them all by 2030.

The 2030 Agenda was endorsed by the Australian government on 25 September 2015 and provides a non-binding roadmap to guide Australian governments, business, universities and civil society groups in a cooperative and coordinated effort toward global sustainable development.

Westport Sustainability Goals

In November 2018, Westport ran a multi-stakeholder workshop to identify which of the SDGs the project could adopt and address and considering the values that could be most affected (either positively or negatively) by the development of a new port and supply chain.

The Westport Sustainability Goals will guide future stages of planning, design, construction and operation to achieve broad economic, social and environmental benefits that will support achievement of the SDGs by 2030. You can view Westport’s Sustainability Goals in the PDF below.
