An exemplary sustainable building should be robust, resilient and responsible.

This means exemplary performance across social, environmental and economic aspects.

The SD Foundation has developed a Principles Framework to describe the topics that this covers.

The framework will be used to:

  • Peer review potential exemplary projects
  • Assist with the implementation of exemplary practices
  • Form a knowledge base of the leading national and international standards
