The Unanderra Station Upgrade is one of several projects within the Transport Access Program that is applying the ISCA IS V1.2 rating tool and is targeting an Excellent rating.
This will be achieved through setting targets across key issues such as climate change adaptation and resilience, energy and carbon reduction, waste to landfill reduction, materials selected, supply chain management, community connection, social procurement, and workforce inclusivity.
