Abstract [en]

During recent years market demand, public consent as well as political legislation have brought about a rise in sustainability requirements for building infrastructure. In many cases it is the facility or property managers’ responsibility to put these changes and requirements into practice. However, there is a lack of adequate management and assessment tools, especially for retail facilities. This paper develops and explores a framework for the sustainability assessment of retail facilities, encompassing all three sustainability dimensions: environmental, social, and economic. Following a thorough literature review of sustainable property management and sustainability assessment of built infrastructure a three-dimension sustainability assessment framework and tool for retail facilities are developed. This framework is subsequently applied to existing retail facilities using a multiple case study approach. The study’s results show the framework to be adequate to serve as a management instrument to owners and managers of retail facilities. It can, with slight modifications, also be applied to other types of commercial buildings.
