Building a Coalition: Global Infrastructure Basel Foundation (GIB)

AFI is building a coalition of partnerships with institutes, organizations, projects, and programs. Here we feature the Global Infrastructure Basel (GIB) Foundation.



About GIB: GIB, the scheme owner of SuRe® - The Standard for Sustainable and Resilient Infrastructure, is a Swiss foundation based in Basel, Switzerland, working to promote sustainable and resilient Infrastructure through sustainable Infrastructure design and financing on a global scale. Active since 2008, GIB works with multiple stakeholders such as city representatives project developers and Infrastructure financiers, with a focus on emerging and developing countries. GIB envisions a world where sustainable and resilient Infrastructure is the norm rather than the exception. as such GIB supports the development and financing of sustainable and resilient Infrastructure through numerous initiatives and capacity building activities.

About SuRe® - The Standard for Sustainable and Resilient Infrastructure The SuRe® Standard is science and evidence-based, developed through a rigorous stakeholder process. As such, SuRe® includes input from scientists and experts on an on-going basis to reflect new findings and understandings in the relevant frameworks for Infrastructure, Sustainability, and Resilience. SuRe® was developed following the ISEAL Alliance Codes of Good Practice for standard setting. The SuRe® Standard builds on existing initiatives and encourages best international practice in line with the most relevant international frameworks. SuRe® does not favour a particular technology or patented item over another; it rather builds up on existing efforts and encourages best international practice in line with the relevant frameworks for Infrastructure Sustainability and Resilience.
