The infrastructure sector accounts for a substantial portion of Australia’s total greenhouse gas emissions

– driven largely by fossil fuel consumption in energy generation and passenger and freight transport.

As institutional investors increasingly consider environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors in their investment decisions, infrastructure owners face new challenges in the way they manage the energy profile of their assets. CEFC finance supports best practice and market leading design, construction and operations. 

The CEFC is investing across the sector to influence clean energy standards for social and economic infrastructure assets, as well as transport and electricity. Infrastructure assets are often long-lived and provide critical services for modern societies.  These assets offer significant potential for emissions abatement. Improvements made to existing asset operations or efficiencies implemented at design and construction stages provide ongoing benefits.
