AbstractPurpose - This paper proposes a conceptual framework underpinning the conflicting key elements in analyzing sustainable development (SD) of real estate property and the environment. Design/methodology/approach - The key elements in the framework are the economic, the socio-environment, the socio-economic and the legal systems which represent different competing values. Findings - The competing values framework encompasses the development of environmental legislation and other governmental policies towards environmental sustainability of construction activities. The competing values which direct policy-making are modelled as short term (resource exploitation) versus long term (resource sustainability) and flexibility (freedom in land use/development) versus control (planning and building laws). As people attain harmonious outcome (intra- and inter-group) in arriving at consensus and directions towards "SD" they do so as members of a complex social organism that has multiple group memberships, interests and loyalties. Research limitations/implications - As loyalties and interests shift, harmony is in transit, and directions of actions and attitudes change as a function of time. The choice of (potentially conflicting) attainable goals towards SD is a consequence of power play amongst stakeholders. Practical implications - The paper is important in highlighting the main issues in conceptualizing key conflicting elements in the formulation of policies for SD. Originality/value - A definition of harmony relating to social exchanges and cultural settings with emphasis on dynamic equilibrium is proposed for the formulation of "SD" policies. © Emerald Group Publishing Limited.
