UNSW SMaRT Centre Director, Professor Veena is a member of the Infrastructure Sustainability Council's Sustainable Materials Technical Working Group providing input to the IS Rating Scheme.
An industry not for profit organisation working in Australia and New Zealand to enable sustainability outcomes in infrastructure, Infrastructure Sustainability Council has been developing and refining its IS Rating Scheme with expert technical input from a range of volunteers.
Veena on behalf of the UNSW SMaRT Centre sits on the Sustainable Materials Technical Working Group.
The IS Rating Scheme (IS) is Australia and New Zealand’s only comprehensive rating system for evaluating economic, social and environmental performance of infrastructure across the planning, design, construction and operational phases of infrastructure assets.
The scheme can assess the sustainability performance of infrastructure at the individual assets level, for portfolios or networks, or even at a regional scale.
