The United Nations strives to promote a healthier society and to develop sustainability, with initiatives such as the New Green Economy, which is part of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). This paper uses a survey of owners and occupiers, using two conceptual frameworks known as the Four Myths of Nature and place theory to investigate whether living in 'green' buildings induces behavioral changes leading to a greener society. The results show that it is not possible to conclude that green buildings are inhabited by green occupants, and that physical design and green development alone can harness the attitudes and behaviors associated with green citizenship. Thus, policymakers and developers should not exclusively rely on agreen built environment to promote green behavior.

The development and investment sectors of the commercial property market presently struggle to validate higher development costs for 'Green' Buildings. New dimensions in property market dynamics surround the measurement of green building returns. These are likely to result in some fundamental changes to the enquiries and perhaps rationale used to determine relevant valuations. This paper explores the new and evolving factors becoming increasingly relevant in the valuation of green and non-green commercial building stock as a response to sustainable performance measurement and attempts to identify the gaps in training for property valuers.
