Title: Sustainable buildings

Abstract1: This Paper results from a study of the business benefits of sustainable practices in construction and property. It is the third of a set of four. Sustainable development and sustainable construction are terms that reflect a common-sense approach to property procurement and management. Sustainable business practices require that we protect the environment and address the needs of staff, clients and our communities, and help us to reduce costs and improve profitability. The 'triple bottom line' challenges us to extend how we account for business success from the balance sheet to include consideration of the environmental and social benefits of our business operations.
