Conventional valuation methods relate to the valuation of existing landed property in relation to commercial rental or disposal, or for the purposes of asset evaluation. The Sustainable Return on Investment (or SuROI) framework described in this report does not attempt to challenge this aspect of practice. Rather, the approach seeks to supplement current practice so that all aspects of built environment, especially social and environmental impacts can be valued and compared. The report will explain the approach, and show how it can apply in a number of illustrative case studies. The proposition is that SuROI has the potential to aid sustainable decisions for private, public and third sector developers, and for those that seek to regulate or enhance these proposals.
