This Directory means that a whole range of built environment professionals need never be caught out by the perversities of policy - in its formulation or on its journey into the real life of you and me. To have in one place the means of not only burrowing down into any one policy, but also of exploring the interconnections is a precious resource for any professional - 'sustainability literate' or not...Today, nobody who delivers our built environment can be excused from taking responsibility for the future. Armed with this Directory their contribution can only be made more effective. Sara Parkin OBE, Forum for the Future
