IISD launches SAVi website, helps policy-makers and investors make informed decisions on financing sustainable infrastructure


Governments and investors are are facing pressures on public budgets, while they are also committing to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement on climate change. As a result, governments and financial stakeholders are increasingly looking for sustainable infrastructure projects that are financially viable.

This is why the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) launched its Sustainable Asset Valuation (SAVi) website today.

SAVi is an assessment methodology that provides policy-makers, governments and private investors with a comprehensive analysis of how much their infrastructure project or portfolio will cost throughout the project life cycle, taking into account important factors that are overlooked in a traditional valuation.

SAVi uses a combination of system dynamics and project finance modelling to capture the full costs of environmental, social, economic and governance risks. Our assessments factor in the dollar value of externalities resulting directly from infrastructure development.
