The Sustainability Policy Chapter was established to maintain an active dialogue between government and industry on the nation’s sustainability goals for the roads sector. Sustainable procurement, climate change resilience and progress rating tools are actively pursued via the Chapter. In recent times, the Chapter recognised the challenge of sustainable growth in Australia and is now pursuing a long-term strategic review of influences in urban planning and design into the future.
The Chapter's Priorities are:
- Maintain active national dialogue on sustainability
- Sustainable procurement
- Define and monitor industry progress
- Increase resilience of road infrastructure to changing climate
