Summary The market for sustainable buildings has rapidly gained momentum in the design and construction phases, however it appears that development and investment in these buildings by the private sector is limited. This is further complicated by the limited information available confirming the financial viability of sustainable buildings, with relatively little research conducted into the relationship between sustainability and the market value of commercial buildings. Currently the demand for sustainable buildings in Australia and New Zealand is being encouraged through government legislation and policy, where investment by the private sector has been relatively slow to develop due to the lack of evidential proof of the economic viability of sustainable buildings. Clearly if the progress and uptake of sustainable buildings is to develop within the property market, it is essential that the relationship between market value and sustainability should be understood in order to fully inform the investment industry.
