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
- 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
