The Sustainability and Resilience in Asset Management (SRiAM) special interest group is seeking expressions of interest from AMCouncil members to join an enthusiastic working group to promote and facilitate integration of sustainability considerations in the context of Asset Management.

The active involvement of AMCouncil members is vital to enable collation and curation of best practice examples and knowledge from all member communities, across all sectors and industries addressing relevant (global) national and local challenges.


The working group task focuses on development of “Guidance Note(s)” which will:

  • Describe and clarify the terms "sustainability" and “resilience” in the context of Asset Management,
  • Align to ISO55001, GFMAM and translate across the four AMCouncil models,
  • Enable people to incorporate sustainability considerations across strategic, tactical and operational levels throughout the entire asset lifecycle,
  • Be read alongside legislation and other existing standards, regulations,
  • Provide organisations and asset managers with guidance to develop their own specific responses to drive sustainable outcomes and improved resilience.


The guidance notes are primarily intended to support existing and potential AMCouncil members across Australia and New Zealand.


The following approach is initially proposed to assist the working group establish a clear understanding of deliverable(s) with a target to launch at AMPEAK in early April 2022.

  1. Discover, investigate, and curate existing materials​
  2. Analyse and align with models​
  3. Case Studies ​
  4. Develop guidance note(s) (approaches, checklists, prompts, frameworks....)

The Project Manager

The Project Manager must be skilled in leading discussion and gaining consensus of the team. You should have experience in managing projects to keep to time and focused on task.  You should ideally have experience in Sustainability and Resilience.


You would need to have time from late November 2021 through to end of March 2022 to commit a few hours per week of volunteer effort in and out of work hours.

The recommendations and links to relevant information will be published on the SRiAM section of the Asset Management Council’s internet page.


The SRiAM Steering Committee will augment and oversee the Sustainability Working Group.  The SRiAM Steering Committee is authorised and governed by the AMCouncil Board.
