"Greening the Built Environment" takes a fully integrative approach to achieving a sustainable built environment - a subject previously treated in an inadequate and piecemeal manner. Setting out the clearest possible specification of the problems involved, it covers their social, economic and environmental dimensions, while also examining in depth specific questions about today's towns and cities. Beginning with a full discussion of sustainability and its application to contemporary towns and cities, the following chapters take up specific issues in greater depth including the construction industry, transport and planning, health and community, equity, and the economy.Stressing the links between environmental damage, poverty and the economy, the authors focus on such interconnections as the site for possible solutions, and set out the implications for future policy. This will be an immensely valuable text for planners and policy makers, as well as for students on environmental and planning courses
