The adoption of the Infrastructure Sustainability Council of Australia's (ISCA) sustainability ratings framework for major Government funded infrastructure in Australia has made sustainability a major focus in securing and delivering public infrastructure.​ The IS Rating Tool was developed by ISCA in collaboration with the industry, to drive and measure sustainability within infrastructure projects and assets. The tool can be applied to built infrastructure, but also to the planning, design and operation of infrastructure. As well as the opportunity to use IS for the purpose of gaining project recognition, it also provides a framework for increased awareness of key sustainability issues and a structure for organisational improvement.
