Welcome to the May edition of Voices on Infrastructure, featuring a recap of the seventh Global Infrastructure Initiative (GII) Summit, held last month. This edition also introduces our recent report Capital Projects 5.0: Reimagining Capital Project Delivery.

More than 500 global leaders from across sectors convened April 6–8 to discuss the project of the future, exploring how infrastructure and capital projects must evolve to tackle emerging challenges and seize opportunities during a post-COVID-19 recovery. This group, representative of the $11.6 trillion global infrastructure industry, shared insights and perspectives on how to shape the future of the industry.

The 2021 Summit demonstrated an inflection point for the industry. While infrastructure investment continues to be seen as a driver for multiple outcomes, sustainability, decarbonization, digitization, social equity, and talent strategy have collectively moved to the top of the agenda.
