- By pursuing common goals through cross-sector collaboration, we take small steps on this important journey together, mainstreaming sustainable business practice, writes Jane Henley, Chief executive officer at the World Green Building Council, in the introduction.

 

In the report, it is stated that market leaders alone cannot transform the vast and complex building sector, but that it demands an ever-greater focus on public policy to stimulate permanent and widespread change.

 

Although, stakeholder expertise is not fully utilized when built environment policy and regulation is being drafted. As well as creating imperfect policy, this creates a disconnect between the policy and those who are required to deliver the solutions. In turn, it leads to ineffective policy implementation and slows the progress of sustainable development of the built environment.

 

However, examples of collaborative public-private policy-making are increasingly common in the green building area. World Green Building Council’s report contains a series of cases on collaborative green building policy-making from around the world, focusing on the success factors and highlighting lessons learned during the process.
