Call for Expressions of Interest to join new Working Groups –

Working Group 1: ‘Asset management decision-making through a sustainability lens’

Realising value for stakeholders requires optimal risk-based decision-making, which balances performance, cost and risk.  It is a critical element of effective asset management and guidance is already available on this.  Asset management decision-making through a sustainability lens will require the adoption of additional tools and approaches.  Comprehensive guidance on how to apply a sustainability lens in asset management decision making is not available.  The working group will research current and emerging asset management decision-making methods to address sustainability and develop a guide that will communicate a range of approaches that could be considered in the decision-making process to drive sustainability in asset management.
