    Abstract

    The aim of this research is to model stakeholder-associated risk networks and gain understanding of the differences and similarities of green building risks in China and Australia, given the different political, social-cultural and legal systems. This paper builds on the authors’ previously published research (Yang and Zou 2014). Case studies of green star accredited recently constructed major office buildings were undertaken in both countries. Data were collected through desktop studies, focused workshops and face-to-face interviews with key project participants, and analysed by using Social Network Analysis (SNA) methods which aims to analyse the characteristics and interdependencies of risks-stakeholders relationships. The research finds that while reputation risks are important for project players in both countries, the ethical risk ‘assessment experience and fairness’ has been highlighted as crucial in the Chinese green practice due to potential corruption issues.
