Infrastructure and Sustainability

Today’s Challenges

Population growth has put a strain on not only existing municipal infrastructures but also the environment. Demand for sustainable infrastructure is higher than ever before. Today, conversations around infrastructure reach far beyond traditional touchpoints, such as transportation, energy and waste management, and delve into primary concerns around environmental quality and human health. The need for sustainability poses a number of challenges for traditional infrastructure and emerging sustainability organizations alike, including executing projects under tight economic constraints and challenging government regulations.

In some economies/regions, a key characteristic of investment in sustainable infrastructure is the high proportion of funding coming from or facilitated by government, or from a blend of public and private sector investment. Understanding this critical interface, which can take a variety of forms, is crucial to supporting the sector.

To lead in this environment, executives need technical knowledge and a capacity to innovate and develop new solutions, as well as achieving manufacturing excellence, and having broad business acumen, to address the strategic issues that shape competitive advantage over time. They also need global experience to work with a complex network of foreign suppliers, partners, and customers.
