This research investigated to what extent Dutch project developers are implementing sustainability measures within construction projects and what the implications are surrounding this process. Despite the current laws and regulations for the overarching term sustainability, there is little knowledge on the implications of actual implementation of sustainability measures. In this research, semi-structured in-depth interviews were carried out among thirteen project developers in the Netherland. The results from the data collection were thoroughly examined to extract the patterns and remarkable findings. Several implications were made regarding the motives of project developers towards their implementation of sustainable measures in relation to the sustainability goals of the Dutch government. In addition, an exposition of the various challenges involved in the implementation of sustainable measures was made, touching upon the cooperation between municipalities and developers.
