This book furthers the debate on new sustainability thinking in the built environment by bringing together a selection of contributions from thought leaders in the UK and the rest of the world with an overarching narrative from Martin Brown.

Central to the book is the emergence of net positive and restorative sustainability, exploring the shift from an often blinkered focus on sustainability as simply energy performance to a more roundedsocial, wellness, health and healthy buildings debate.

It also spotlights sharing and collaboration through social media and BIM as new tools in the ‘sustainability toolbox’ which provide opportunities to rapidly advance sustainability thinking, development and action.
