• Infrastructure x Equity

    advancing equity and resilience in the new green economy

  • Mission

    We are passionate about integrating equity and inclusion into infrastructure development. We bring together development professionals, government officials, and communities to transform how projects are envisioned, funded, built and maintained byand forpresent and future generations. We strive to ensure that workers and local residents can access and participate in the green economy, contributing to a just climate transition.

    About Our Organization

    Founded in 2022, our non-profit works at the intersection of infrastructure development and equity. We believe projects that are genuinely responsive to the needs of local stakeholders, and that integrate underrepresented voices and values—including cultural heritage and the natural environment—can pay enormous social dividends, while achieving financial sustainability in the long run.
    We equip entities carrying out infrastructure work (including private companies, civil society, local and regional governments) with holistic frameworks and development strategies to address the multidimensional landscape of community values. We believe resilient development must be inclusive, and that a sustainable, climate-friendly future requires mainstreaming concern for justice, diversity, and equity.
