Description :
This paper explores the development of green building sector in England and Wales and its potential role in transformative change towards a green economy. It shows that green entrepreneurs move between ‘green’ and ‘conventional’ business, evolving over time, such that this is a fluid and blurred, rather than static, state. Moreover, while the green economy and the green building sector are often referred to as coherent sectors, with agreed and consistent practices, our evidence suggests that they are far from agreed, that business models vary, and that there are significant contradictions within so-called green building practices.
