Does “green” affect value? On March 2nd, 2007, key thinkers and practitioners from leading valuation, appraisal and related industries converged to discuss the critical issues and challenges at the nexus of valuation and sustainability.

The Vancouver Valuation Summit provided an opportunity to access critical strategic intelligence about how sustainability factors can add tangible value to everyday business and investment transactions.

Summit 2007 was anchored by a major public conference focusing on the link between sustainability and valuation. This set the stage for a private roundtable, attended by senior industry stakeholders and professionals who discussed the process of embedding sustainability within valuation practices and the initial development of practice guidelines. The Summit resulted in the signing of the Vancouver Accord – a commitment by valuation standards organizations globally to begin the process to embed sustainability into valuation and appraisals.
