Abstract

Over the last ten years voluntary labelling schemes such as energy labels and ecolabelling have become increasingly popular within the property sector. However, since the schemes are voluntary in nature their success generally depends on the environmental response of both the property owner and the facility manager. This paper discusses the prerequisites for introducing a successful energy and ecolabelling scheme in Hong Kong. The paper also introduces a costbenefit analysis associated with Hong Kong's accredited criteria for ecolabelling. Finally, the paper examines the controversial issue of linking ecolabelling to property valuation.
