Infrastructure investments as economic stimulus in a post COVID-19 world

Sustainable infrastructure investments

Investing in sustainable infrastructure projects will support the transition to a more sustainable society and create a world that is ‘better than normal’ after COVID-19. The momentum is now to act as a collective government and stimulate a sustainable future.

Infrastructure as the tool to stimulate the economy

The current COVID-19 crisis is having major impact on both individual citizens and businesses across the world. This Insight focusses on investment in infrastructure as one of the key tools to keep people employed, businesses afloat and to maintain the productive capacity of the economy as well as maintain, and possibly increase, the attractiveness as business location.

 

Our approach

COVID-19 has caused unprecedented disruption over the past few months and left deep marks in the global economy. We believe the strong downturn also comes with potential opportunities. It offers an excellent stepping stone to accelerate the transition to a climate-neutral economy and to combine it with economically sustainable recovery by fundamentally invest in sustainable infrastructure projects.


We describe in steps how to mitigate the current COVID-19 impact on the economy and how we can build back better together by:

  • Mobilising current key metropolitan infrastructure projects
  • Focusing on the existing asset base
  • Looking beyond the financial business case
  • Using technology to deliver infrastructure more efficiently
  • Urging for sustainability
