11 11 Overall conclusions 181, Heightened concern about the threat of environmental catastrophe. has coincided with a downturn in the fortunes of those involved in the. property market and the construction industry There is no doubt that. the present over supply in the market is enabling occupiers to exercise. their preferences by choosing the buildings that are both environ. mentally friendly and cheaper to run Stuart johnson s book is there. fore not only valuable pulling together the many environmental. threads that relate to property and construction but timely. The agents of change are often described as the carrot and the stick. but in its ability to change course the construction industry is more. like a super tanker than a donkey its enormous size will make it slow. to change direction even when the helm is hard over Many believe. that we will not see environmental concerns leading to action unless a. legislative stick is applied to the construction industry Statutory regu. lation is important but at the moment it tends to apply only to new. buildings On the other hand information and a will to take action can. affect choices in respect of both new and existing buildings I hope. that this book will provide those who feel like nibbling at the carrot of a. better environment with the information they need, It is a similar wish that has motivated The Royal Institution of Char. tered Surveyors to take a keen interest in the subject of the environ. ment by exposing members to issues of current concern and by talking. to government on environmental issues affecting property and con. struction The aim is to raise interest in the subject and point the. direction in which the property profession can meet existing and. expected demand for practical and unbiased advice, There has been much research into the way in which buildings affect. our environment This book lists many of the current references In. bringing together contributions from a wide variety of experts it is my. hope that it will enable enlightened self interest to grow among prop. erty professionals,x Foreword, This book will help those who wish to respond to market require. ments develop their understanding of environmental issues and adapt. their services to provide us with and help us occupy greener buildings.
