Location: International Environment House II

Description: ABOUT THIS MEETING

Governments, investors and citizens continue to debate the added value of
sustainable infrastructure. Some of the core questions they consider are the following:

- Does sustainable infrastructure systematically bring more value-for-money than business-as-usual alternatives?
- How can risks be reduced across an infrastructure project’s life cycle by incorporating environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations? How can we calculate the costs of these risks?

IISD and the MAVA Foundation built the Sustainable Asset Valuation (SAVi) to respond to these questions. SAVi calculates the costs of environmental, social, economic and governance risks. SAVi also places a dollar value on externalities that arise as a direct consequence of infrastructure development. SAVi is therefore able to show why sustainable infrastructure can deliver better value-for-money for citizens and investors alike. 

You are cordially invited to attend an event at International Environment House II on 19 March 2019, to debate SAVi’s early track record.

The meeting is organised by UN Environment, the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD), the MAVA Foundation, Sustainable Finance Geneva, and the Green Growth Knowledge Platform (GGKP). The event is being held within the framework of the Geneva Environment Network.

The new SAVi website will be launched and live from 19 March: www.iisd.org/SAVi
