Global Infrastructure Initiative

Since 2012, McKinsey & Company’s Global Infrastructure Initiative (GII) has convened many of the world’s most senior leaders in infrastructure and capital projects to identify ways to improve the delivery of new infrastructure and get more out of existing assets. Our approach has been to stimulate change by building a community of global infrastructure leaders who can exchange ideas and find practical solutions to improve how we plan, finance, build, and operate infrastructure.

Our research suggests that up to 40 percent of global infrastructure and capital project investment is poorly spent because of bottlenecks, lack of innovation, and market failures. McKinsey established the GII to address these issues, promote economic growth, and contribute to more resilient and secure communities. GII is a separate entity and collaborates with infrastructure leaders from around the world, leveraging McKinsey’s skills, resources and convening power.

GII has hosted three successful summits (Istanbul in 2012; Rio de Janeiro in 2014; and San Francisco in 2015), and a series of regional roundtables. In addition, GII disseminates the best insights and practices from around the world through Voices from GII, and shares a collection of tools, aimed at supporting leaders making informed decisions. GII also hosts innovation site visits, demonstrating some the industry’s most exciting infrastructure innovations.

Collectively, our intent is that these efforts will inspire the GII community to lead the much-needed change in global infrastructure.
