2022 is expected to be another year of setbacks and recoveries — and recoveries and setbacks. It will however also be a year of opportunity as the world learns from the past and works to build back better - with more resilience, sustainability and equity.

Yet it will also be a year of uncertainty as new challenges emerge and social expectations continue to shift as we learn to live in a world with Covid-19. Infrastructure leaders will have an opportunity to fundamentally change our collective path on the Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) agenda.

Like it or not, the infrastructure decisions we make this year will set the stage for how the world will evolve over the next century. If we get it right, we have an unprecedented opportunity to catapult humanity forward into a cleaner, more productive and more equitable future. But if we get it wrong — if we allow our differences to supersede our collective interest — we will bequeath our children a very bleak future indeed.
