Welcome to GII

We convene leaders to improve the delivery of major projects and to get more out of existing assets.

While infrastructure investment continues to be seen as an important driver for multiple outcomes, sustainability, digital technologies, and talent strategy have collectively moved to the top of the CEO agenda. To solve these challenges, bold commitments and strong collaboration across the public and private sectors will be essential. Those organizations that step up their game now will be better prepared to confront future challenges—and contribute to building a more resilient, inclusive world.

Our approach

How we think about challenges and solutions

Our approach has been to stimulate change by providing a safe forum for global leaders across sectors to exchange ideas, build relationships, and make the necessary commitments to bridge global infrastructure gaps. Our integrated approach spans the value chain:

Plan

Focuses on how planners can respond with new tools, techniques and approaches to deliver in this era of rapid urbanization and technological change.

Finance

Identifies actions to bring previously untapped sources of public and private money to projects, recognizing the importance of financing bankable sustainable infrastructure.

Build

Explores new approaches to advance productivity through leveraging the digital wave, applying lean construction, and innovating the contracting model.

Operate

Examines levers to maximize asset utilization, revenue opportunities, and customer experience in the digitized world.
