The Vancouver Accord addresses the interrelationship of sustainability and valuation.

There is increasing need and demand for the business case for sustainability to be established, and valuation can play an important role. Recognizing and understanding that valuers can no longer ignore sustainability, the Accord is a commitment to:

  • Review how sustainability relates to the practice and standards of valuation.

  • Working with stakeholders to promote awareness of and competency in the appropriate methods of addressing sustainability in valuations and worth appraisals.

  • Working with those within and outside the valuation professions worldwide, to educate and inform about sustainability and its relationship to value and worth.

  • Regular reporting of the collaborative progress via an agreed secretariat set up for that purpose.

The Accord represents a formal expression and commitment by signatories to advance understanding, knowledge, education and practices about Valuation and sustainability. Led by Premier Gordon Campbell of British Columbia, the following individuals signed this historic Accord:
