Title: Sustainable buildings: benefits for occupiers, designers, investors, developers and constructors

Ref Code: IP13/03
Authors: A Yates

Abstract1: These four Papers result from a study of the business benefits of sustainable construction practices in the construction and property sectors. They focus on occupiers, the design team, investors and developers, and constructors, respectively. Sustainable business practices require that we protect the environment and address the needs of staff, clients and our communities. But they also help to reduce costs and improve profitability. The 'triple bottom line' challenges us to extend the way we account for business success from the financial balance sheet to include consideration of the environmental and social benefits of our operations.
