FAST-Infra Sustainable Infrastructure Label

The FAST-Infra Sustainable Infrastructure Label (SI Label) is a globally applicable label for projects demonstrating significant positive sustainability performance. It is designed to enable developers and operators to show the positive impact of an infrastructure asset, and attract investors seeking assets which positively contribute to sustainable outcomes. The SI Label is designed to enable transformation of sustainable infrastructure into a mainstream, liquid asset class.

FAST-Infra Sustainable Infrastructure Framework

This FAST-Infra Sustainable Infrastructure Framework (SI Framework) sets out requirements and guidance for market participants seeking to apply the SI Label for infrastructure assets. Use of the SI Framework and application of the associated SI Label are voluntary. The SI Label can be applied at all lifecycle stages including planning, designing, sponsoring, developing, constructing, operating, financing, and decommissioning. Application of the SI Label requires consideration of all the following five requirements of the SI Framework:

  1. Indicative & Non-Exhaustive List of Sustainable Infrastructure Types
  2. Sustainability Dimensions, Criteria, Methodology, & Measurement
  3. Minimum Safeguards & Risk Management
  4. Declaration, Disclosure, & Reporting
  5. Independent External Review

The SI Framework and the SI Label are designed to promote integrity in the market for sustainable infrastructure assets. The SI Framework encourages transparency, disclosure, and reporting while supporting investment decision-making. It establishes cohesion that builds on, and complements, other standards and guidelines in the market. Indeed, many of the features of the SI Label use existing requirements and good practice in project development. Application of the SI Label enables comparability of metrics across sustainable infrastructure assets.
