  • The role of the valuer is to consider all factors relevant to value. The aim of this CPD is to present to valuation surveyors a document to assist them around the considerations that need to be made for the inspection, valuation and assessment of assets in the context of the environment and sustainability in reaching a final opinion on the valuation of a real estate asset.

    By way of context – the RICS has recommended the inclusion of sustainability considerations as part of the valuation process since 2009. The most recent RICS Valuation- Global Standards (‘Red Book Global Standards’ 2020) now references sustainability within the mandatory professional standards and an update of the RICS guidance note on sustainable property is currently underway.
