Great to see @UKGBC #stateofsustainability report

The underlying datasets vary according to scope, time periods, and methodology. Special care should be taken when comparing them against one another. We have selected performance related metrics only. We have not sought to include examples of actions taken by leading businesses in the sector. Some indicators reflect only the more sustainable projects including samples related to GRESB, Better Building Partnership (BBP), BREEAM etc. This is not representative of the industry at large. Reliable data remains challenging to access, but new technologies (eg satellite mapping, open data etc) have made the task easier than it would have been 5 years ago. UKGBC has not conducted any verification or assurance of the data included in this report. We have referenced all data sources and refer readers to these for more information on research methodologies and accuracy predictions.
