The Infrastructure Sustainability Council of Australia (ISCA) Board of Directors has appointed a new Chief Executive Officer.
Ms Simpson joined the ISCA two years ago as the business and technical services lead. She has been heavily involved in the growth of the team and the Infrastructure Sustainability rating scheme across Australia and New Zealand.
ISCA Chair David Singleton said the board has been impressed with Ainsley’s leadership and progress since her appointment as COO.
“Ainsley’s collaborative and empowering leadership style has been instrumental in shaping our future strategy,” he said.
“We will be building on the exceptional sustainability impacts that ISCA has enabled by partnering with industry; and will continue to champion progressive outcomes with our growing member base.”
Deputy Chair of ISCA Sarah Marshall said Ms Simpson has proven she is the leader to bring stakeholders and ISCA members together to catalyse change.
“We’re not able to solve industry-wide issues in a siloed approach, we need to engage with the whole broad base of the built environmental to enable sustainable solutions,” she said.
The ISCA aims to enable sustainability in infrastructure through a third-party rating program, training and knowledge sharing, and creating a community of practice. To date, more than $9.7 billion in infrastructure projects is engaged in the Infrastructure Sustainability rating scheme across Australia and New Zealand.
