We design incentive mechanism and put forward policy suggestions, in order to stimulate developers to construct more low-carbon buildings, and prompt more customers to purchase low-carbon buildings instead of non-low-carbon buildings. Design/methodology/approach
Firstly, we adopt questionnaire and reference study to acquire the status quo of the development of low-carbon building in China, and the relative advanced experience of USA, Britain, Japan and Germany.
Then, we adopt mechanism design theory to design feasible incentive mechanism to stimulate developers and costumers.Findings
We found that Chinese government should apply the following methods to prompt the development of low-carbon buildings, including: strengthening propaganda to acquaint developers and costumers with low-carbon buildings and government policies, subsidizing developers or/and costumers, and establishing laws and regulations to guarantee the quality and scale of low-carbon buildings.Research limitations/implications
The survey subject of this thesis is mainly the developers and consumers in Chongqing.
In the future, incentive mechanisms and policies for the development of China's low-carbon building can be enriched and improved through empirical and case studies on developers and consumer of other areas of China.
In the future, through the study of the implementation effect of these policies, the corresponding suggestions on improving these policies can be proposed to better promote the development of China's low-carbon buildings.Practical implications
The incentive mechanism and policy suggestions for Chinese government are targeted and feasible. Government can implicate them to stimulate developers and costumers, and realize the sound and rapid development of low-carbon buildings in China.Social implications
This thesis can help the whole society understand government policies and regulations relative to low-carbon buildings. Some costumers may change their mind and purchase low-carbon buildings.
The status quo of the development of low-carbon building in China, and the relative advanced experience of USA, Britain, Japan and Germany are analyzed. It provides reference to researchers, developers and policy makers.
That targeted and feasible incentive mechanism and policy suggestions are proposed provides reference for government making relative policies.Keywords
