Sustainable Built Environments is the main approach in the construction industry to meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. Sustainability encompasses a triple bottom line that meets three pillars; environmental, social, and cultural development, and economic dimensions in the built environment. To advance sustainable built environments, the all participants in the built environment need to concentrate on “Zero or Nearly-zero Energy Building”, “Sustainable Policy and Governance”, “Sustainability for Market Penetration and Commercialization”, “Industry, University and Government Collaboration”, and “Longevity and Durability of Structure”. In addition, it is also very important to recognize how all stakeholders in the built environment prepare for the post carbon-era, complying with COP 21.
This Special Issue will consist of selected papers from the “SBE 16 Seoul Conference”, a conference held in Seoul, South Korea, 11–14 December, 2015. The main theme of this conference is “Actions for the Built Environment of Post-Carbon Era, Complying with COP 21”. The purpose of this conference is for scientists, scholars, engineers, and graduate students, from universities/research institutes, to present ongoing research activities in order to exchange research ideas in the area of sustainability in the built environment. The Guest Editor will work with the conference international committee members, who are renowned experts in the areas of sustainability, to select high quality research work that improves the body of knowledge in sustainability.
