FAST-Infra aims to close the trillion-dollar emerging market infrastructure investment gap, with urgency, by transforming sustainable infrastructure from a niche practice into a mainstream, liquid asset class.
As a first step, FAST-Infra developed a new certification – a Sustainable Infrastructure (SI) Label, for infrastructure projects, providing a market signal that labelled projects meet clear sustainability standards.
The next step is building a FAST-Infra Platform that uses technology to transform the process by which infrastructure projects are developed, financed, and managed. A partnership between leading technology, data, project finance, and financial services companies, the Platform will manage and streamline data, secure transacting ledger that will allow developers, governments, lenders, institutional investors, insurers and advisors to collaborate more easily.
The platform and products being built will:
- Accelerate project development, bring more bankable projects to market and connect investors to project sponsors more easily
- Ensure confidence in the sustainability of projects
- Simplify the securitization of infrastructure loans
This will have a transformational impact, making infrastructure a standardized, scalable, and sustainable asset class.
