Research Project - ISCA alignment with other sustainable design tools/guides/procedures and carbon calculators

More and more transport projects are being registered for an IS rating in Australia and New Zealand. At the same time ISCA is conscious that there are a number of sustainable design tools/guides/procedures and carbon calculators which infrastructure planners, procurers and operators use.

ISCA would like to ensure that the relevant Credits and Guidance in the IS scheme are complementary to the other internal infrastructure sustainability guides and tools being used. Therefore to understand the alignment and variances between the relevant IS credits and the differing guides and tools, Arup, on behalf of ISCA is sponsoring and undertaking research with the following aims:

  1. To understand the current alignment and gaps in terms of the current Australian and New Zealand transport agency carbon calculators and sustainable design guidelines to the relevant credits of the ISCA ‘IS’ rating tool
  2. To identify opportunities and a proposed pathway for improving alignment of the carbon calculators and sustainable design guidelines with the IS rating tool

Arup is seeking ISCA stakeholder’s contributions to suggest carbon calculators or sustainable design guidelines which have been used on recent or current projects to be included in this research.

Please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with suggestions of carbon calculators or sustainable design guidelines to include in this Arup research project by the 6 February 2015.

Arup will be engaging further with owners of some of the key guides and tools during this project.

A summary of this research will be made available through ISCA at its conclusion
