The article presents the history and background of sustainable construction, pictures the development and state of relevant directives and standards, and couples sustainable construction to the trend towards performance based thinking in construction. The rapid development of IT-based life cycle design and management tools is briefly commented. Is the building and construction sector mature enough to meet the challenges and to take this road to the future? There are market arguments and business possibilities, but also a daily practice providing examples of counteraction
