Accounting for sustainable investment in real estate

There is an old saying that 'what gets measured gets done', and in the world of investing and accounting that is very true. An example is that rating agencies rate firms risk levels based on accounting data. 

As sustainability becomes increasingly important for business, it would be great if there could also be some form of sustainability accounting measure. This project studies how sustainability metrics can be developed for the real estate sector, and how these measures can be used by real estate investors as global standards of sustainability.
