This report by the International Initiative for a Sustainable Built Environment, released in July 2020, looks at how expectations and opportunities for the built environment have shift with COVID-19. The report explores impacts of changes in personal and household behaviour under pandemic conditions, and their impact on pathways to a sustainable built environment. Aspects of urban systems (e.g., neighbourhood features and density) are discussed in relation to pandemic and post-pandemic measures.  The authors also look at key requirements for multiple building types, from building entries and shared facilities to public washrooms and lifts in high-rise buildings. The report will be of interest to building owners, contractors, business owners, health professionals, and environmentalists.
Key words: building operations, COVID-19, consumer behaviour, built environment
