Today, ‘green buildings’ have become one of the most famous and fastest growing construction and design concepts; in fact, green buildings are doubling every three years worldwide. Owners, developers, architects, designers and even consumers are realizing its importance in sustainability, and expressing deep interest in the cost-e ciency, energy saving solutions, modern design, and the quality of life that such buildings are offering to present and future generations.
This white paper by Solidiance ranks the performance of 10 global cities: Beijing, Dubai, Hong Kong, London, New York, Paris, Shanghai, Singapore, Sydney, and Tokyo (not in particular order) with regards to green buildings performance. Each city was analyzed to assess green building policies and targets, adoption of green building certification and construction projects, and the efficient performance of the city’s built environment.
The purpose of the paper is to benchmark and publish the green building performance of these global cities, in order to evaluate global progress towards sustainable development, increase knowledge-sharing, share best practices, and better understand what is best (and what is not) working for cities on the global green building stage.
