Pursuing Additional Value of Green Buildings in Japan
I subscribed an article "A note on environmental value added for real estate" for the tenth anniversary memory article of Tokyo association of real estate appraisers in 2005 and won the highest award.
Since then, I have been considering ways of applying my theory in new real estate business such as consulting for sustainable construction.
And now, I am pursuing methods for connecting CASBEE, which is a Japanese comprehensive assessment system for green buildings, to real estate appraisal (see Figure2).
In TBLI CONFERENCE™ ASIA 2009, I would like to present my theory and my recent activities to promote green buildings in Japan.
