Description

The primary objective of this paper is to contribute to a shared North American (Canada, Mexico and the United States) vision of green building in the residential sector, as a response to the challenge represented by climatic change and its consequences. In particular, this paper is intended to offer a current and future diagnostic assessment of green building in Mexico and to identify the obstacles and driving factors that in the future will hinder or permit the creation of a green building market that enjoys acceptance by final users as well as financial and governmental sectors.
