The Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) – Zofnass Program collaboration began in mid-2013 with two pilot case studies from their private sector finance department, expanison of the airport Juan Santamaria in Costa Rica and a wind-farm Peralta in Uruguay. Soon the collaboration was expanded in creating the first private sector infrastructure sustainability awards program, the Infrastructure 360° awards, in Latin America and the Caribbean.
The Infrastructure 360° awards will identify, assess and reward sustainable infrastructure investments made by the private sector and public-private partnerships in IDB borrowing member countries. They will recognize outstanding sustainability practices with emphasis on climate and environment, as well as leading practices in social impact, governance and innovation.was expanded in creating the first private sector infrastructure sustainability awards program in Latin America and the Caribbean.
As part of this initiative, the Zofnass Program has developed an online self-assessment tool where project owners can evaluate and submit their infrastructure project. The IDB and Zofnass Program will select the 12 best projects every year to undergo a detailed sustainability assessment, from which the 3 best will be chosen as award nominees by a panel of experts. The first group of awardees will be announced at the IDB’s Annual Meeting in 2014. The IDB – Zofnass Program collaboration will provide exceptional opportunities for research and education for students and faculty.
