Environmental and sustainability valuation

Environmental and sustainability issues are increasingly important in the appraisal and valuation of land and property.

Chartered surveyors completing valuations are therefore expected to have a comprehensive awareness of sustainability matters (see Background and context), including the key aspects of environmental, social and economic factors, and how they influence the behaviours of  market participants.

Other relevant environmental considerations include various schemes and measures. Valuers have a key role to play in Building sustainability and environmental considerations into property valuation and this is confirmed in the requirements and recommendations of RICS Valuation – Global Standards.
