Sustainable Buildings Market Study 2023

The answer is clear:

Sustainability is important for successful business operations

98% of all survey respondents consider sustainability important for successful business operations. This is an increase of 4% from the 2021 survey and it affirms, what we already know: Sustainability will permeate business operations now and in the future. 

The Sustainable Buildings Market Study 2023 is now available. Every other year we ask investors, developers, contractors, engineers, architects, and designers from all over the world to give their take on the current state and prospects for the construction and real estate industry in relation to sustainability.

The study covers insights into:

  • Future trends and technology in the built environment
  • Drivers and barriers for sustainability
  • Circular economy strategies
  • Net Zero Carbon strategies
  • Certification schemes and benefits 
  • Data collection and reporting

This market study is the seventh of its kind, formerly known as the Green Market Study. The 2021 study can be found here.
