Abstract
Rapid urbanization and economic growth in China are increasing the pressure on limited natural resources and policy options to deal with sustainability problems. Within this context, several policy instruments have been implemented to encourage the development of green building. However, no evaluations about related impacts and outcomes have been done until today. To fill this knowledge gap, this research aims to assess the performance of green building policies in terms of market transformation. Using Shanghai as a study case along with an example of Chenghuaxinyuan project, the research offers an intensive and systematic analysis of the research topic. The method for analysis is based on market transformation theory. Key findings show... (More)
Rapid urbanization and economic growth in China are increasing the pressure on limited natural resources and policy options to deal with sustainability problems. Within this context, several policy instruments have been implemented to encourage the development of green building. However, no evaluations about related impacts and outcomes have been done until today. To fill this knowledge gap, this research aims to assess the performance of green building policies in terms of market transformation. Using Shanghai as a study case along with an example of Chenghuaxinyuan project, the research offers an intensive and systematic analysis of the research topic. The method for analysis is based on market transformation theory. Key findings show that green building development in Shanghai is at a crossed stage of both market formation and expansion; but there is still a lack of proper designed standards and incentive mechanism to stimulate developers’ green motivation, increase customers’ demand, and help innovations on green building design and technology to break through into the building market. In the last part, some corresponding suggestions on policies for green building development in Shanghai are put forward. (Less)
