1. Centre for Construction and Environment :
  The website of the Centre for Construction and Environment, which fosters the implementation of sustainability principles into the creation of the built environment internationally, is composed of the following references and links and offers sources of information recommended to learn more on ecological building proponents.
2. Environmental Economics :
  One way of using economics is to ensure that the costs and the benefits of environmental measures are well balanced. Although it is difficult to estimate costs and benefits, there is an increasing demand that this is done before new environmental policy is decided on a European level. The economic unit of Environment DG supports the technical units (dealing e.g. with air pollution, water pollution, waste, climate change etc.) in finding such information.
3. The International Institute for Sustainable Development :
  This site contains a wide variety of information of use to those interested in the topics of ecological tax reform, taxation and subsidy reform, government environmental policies, eco-efficiency, or sustainable development and government policy. Through the annotated bibliography and case studies, it provides tools for people seeking change.
4. Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development OECD :
  This part of our web site introduces the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), and describes how it works. The OECD groups 30 member countries in an organisation that, most importantly, provides governments a setting in which to discuss, develop and perfect economic and social policy. They compare experiences, seek answers to common problems and work to co-ordinate domestic and international policies that increasingly in today's globalised world must form a web of even practice across nations. Their exchanges may lead to agreements to act in a formal way - for example, by establishing legally-binding codes for free flow of capital and services, agreements to crack down on bribery or to end subsidies for shipbuilding.
