Event Details

Frédéric Blanc-Brude, Director, EDHEC infrastructure Institute speaks on a panel about ‘Data collection and benchmarks for quality infrastructure investment.’

To facilitate a common understanding of quality standards for infrastructure, the elements of quality infrastructure, to the extent possible, need to be measured through appropriate indicators. This could require not only financial data, but also elements of sustainability (such as environmental, social and governance) to allow benchmarking and comparison of quality dimensions. In this context, existing initiatives as well as the Infrastructure Data Initiative are aiming to support investors in identifying quality infrastructure investment opportunities, seeking also to enhance the mobilisation of private financing for quality infrastructure by reducing information asymmetries. Improved data availability will also support governments and MDBs in their ambitions of providing quality infrastructure as well as to set the right quality priorities and objectives.

Efforts are needed to identify existing methodologies to develop appropriate ESG-related performance indicators for infrastructure, while also identifying gaps in data and information that could further support the creation of benchmarks and performance measurement criteria for quality infrastructure investment. In this regard, the Infrastructure Data Initiative is addressing the issue of establishing infrastructure as an asset class through data collection and improving the availability of infrastructure investment data and aims to create a centralised and publicly available repository on historical long-term data on infrastructure at an asset level.
