About the FAST-Infra Label

The FAST-Infra Label is a globally recognized system that enables the identification and assessment of sustainable infrastructure projects. The label is based on a comprehensive framework embedding over 25 existing standards and regulations, including the Equator Principles, the International Finance Corporation’s (IFC) Performance Standards, the UN global indicator framework for the SDGs, and other guidelines developed by Multilateral Development Banks (MDBs), among others.

The framework includes four sustainability dimensions —(i) Environmental; (ii) Social; (iii) Governance, and (iv) Adaptation and Resilience dimension— and 14 criteria. The label can be used by all infrastructure players and implemented into diverse infrastructure projects across all stages and regions, particularly in emerging and developing economies.

To date, five renewable energy projects spanning India, the Philippines, and Vietnam have received the Self-assessed Label.

Origins of the FAST-Infra Label

The FAST-Infra Label was conceived in early 2020 during the One Planet Summit through collaboration among a relevant group of leading organizations. Committed to collectively advancing sustainable infrastructure development globally, the primary goal of this cluster was to bridge the existing investment shortfall in sustainable infrastructure. 

 

The multi-stakeholder group behind the FAST-Infra Label includes the Climate Policy Initiative (CPI), HSBC, the International Finance Corporation (IFC), the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), and the World Bank Group’s Global Infrastructure Facility (GIF).
