Special Issue Information
Sustainable building is an integral part of urban development, producing environmentally responsible, socially inclusive, economically prudent, and resilient built infrastructure, communities, spaces, and cities. The common practices, ethical issues, technologies, and global perspectives are yet to be aggregated for the theoretical stocktaking and practical application of sustainable building for urban development. The goals of this Special Issue are twofold. The first goal is to foster sustainable building practices for urban development. The second one is to create new research knowledge in the built environment field to maximize the impacts of the built environment in urban futures.
Authors are welcome to submit original research in and around the following research areas:
- Professional ethics and ethical concerns in sustainable urban development;
- Responsible sourcing for building construction;
- Inclusiveness (such as safety, resilience, gender, and disability inclusivity) in building and urban planning and development;
- Net-zero building for sustainable urban development;
- Application of ESG (environmental, social, and governance) standards and measurement tools in the corporate built and urban environment;
- Community networks for sustainable building against natural disasters;
- Digital technologies for accessing sustainable urban building solutions;
- Sustainable building and urban development divide between rural and urban dwellers, and between developed and developing countries;
- Global cooperation for sustainable building and urban development (including government regulations and policies, city statutes, intergovernmental collaboration, international development organization frameworks);
- Sustainable urban transport systems application.
