Metro Trains, rated Excellent – ISCA Infrastructure Sustainability (IS) Operations Rating
Metro Trains have become the first rail operator to achieve an ‘Excellent’ rating in May 2020. Metro had made a commitment to measure sustainability performance annually using the Infrastructure Sustainability Council of Australia (ISCA) Infrastructure Sustainability ‘IS’ Operations Rating Scheme.
The scheme is a voluntary standard that measures performance and rewards management practices that go beyond compliance to adopting best practice and innovating to achieve sustainability outcomes.
Sustainability performance is measured across 15 categories: management systems; procurement and purchasing; climate change adaptation; energy and carbon; water; materials; discharges to air, land and water; land; waste; ecology; community health, wellbeing and safety; heritage; stakeholder participation, urban and landscape design; and innovation.
