Sustainability & Resilience SIG

The Sustainability and Resilience in Asset Management (SRiAM) Special Interest Group’s purpose is to clarify, promote and integrate sustainability and resilience as essential considerations in the context of Asset Management.

The SRiAM aims to bring together professionals to share knowledge, industry best practices, experience and case studies to support learning and sharing knowledge amongst AMC members. Our ambition is  to develop practical solutions, frameworks and tools to support  asset management practices and industries across  Australia and New Zealand to enhance resilience to climate change and strive to ensure a sustainable future for generations to come.

Objectives:

  • Promote the role of Asset Management as a key enabler for a sustainable future.
  • Provide a platform to connect like-minded professionals and exchange knowledge, insights and foresights of current and future trends emerging through Sustainability and Resilience Industry Best practices in Asset Management.
  • Influence industries and drive multi stakeholder cooperation and business engagement to ultimately accelerate the transition towards a sustainable and resilient planet.
  • Develop and provide Members with tools to assess, evaluate and develop sustainable and resilient interventions and investments through managed risk.
  • Develop a forum and knowledge library accessible to members, industry sectors and academia to share and disseminate asset-related information, knowledge and case studies
  • Engage and collaborate with AMC members through planned, structured and themed events and networking opportunities to inspir and influence all sectors to transition towards and systematically implement asset management models and practices focused on delivering enhanced sustainable and resilient outcomes.

The NSW government strives to deliver transport services and operations that balances economic, environment, and social issues with a focus on sustainability.

It is well recognised within the asset management sector that climate change brings stress to transport assets. Extreme weather and physical impacts caused by rising temperatures and natural disasters make risk assessment and asset management a crucial element within governments.

TfNSW acknowledges resilience among its existing assets, particularly older roads, may not be effective for future climate impacts, and therefore many are under significant risk of damage and failure. New road assets must also be designed and built with adaptation measures.

Effective asset management reduces the overall cost of the asset over its lifecycle. It is therefore prudent to investigate tools that respond to shocks and damages caused by climate change, and implement new design methodologies and technologies for maintenance and construction in ways that enhance resilience1.
