Purpose: This paper was compiled with the intent of underscoring the benefits of high performance design, its relationship to productivity gains and losses, and the total life-cycle and building design cause-and-effect cost relationship. It also aims to provide a clear and simple understanding of life-cycle energy-economic-carbon risks portfolio of the built sector (individually or collectively), to guide credible reasoning for decision-making at the highest levels in policy making concerning global warming. These are geared towards developing practical financial risk management models and policies (most coveted by the climate change campaign) that would steer life-cycle value considerations into capital funding arrangements for advancing and improving high performance building design by all sectors of the global economy. This will inevitably advance the carbon emissions reduction initiative.
