In 2008 RICS commissioned the Oxford Institute for Sustainable Development (OISD) at Oxford Brookes University to undertake a three year benchmarking and monitoring survey for 2009-2011 of how RICS members were engaging with the sustainability agenda. The key aims of the RICS Green Gauge survey are to:
- Assess the extent to which the surveying profession is continuing to engage with the sustainability agenda, by examining key measures such as the response to client demand for sustainability-based services and the frequency of use of sustainability information, tools and techniques.
- Track and monitor attitudes towards the sustainability agenda over time, and examine changes in attitudes by Professional Group and by Global Region.
- Identify and prioritise policy actions for RICS to monitor and improve the level of service it provides to its members in relation to the use of such information, tools and techniques.
The new research builds on the RICS Green Profession report of 2007.
