Description
Frontiers of Engineering Management is a research journal sponsored by the Chinese Academy of Engineering, administered jointly by Higher Education Press, Tsinghua University and Huazhong University of Science and Technology, and published by Higher Education Press, China. The journal is international in its scope and mission. It is published quarterly in English in both print and online versions. Frontiers of Engineering Management provides a high-quality international platform for academic researchers, industry professionals and other constituent communities in the broad field of engineering management to impart and share the latest research results and knowledge in the form of research articles, reviews, letters and comments.
Frontiers of Engineering Management strives to promote the advancement of the science of engineering management, the improvement of the practice of engineering management, and the preparation of researchers and practitioners to address contemporary and future challenges in engineering management. The topics covered by the journal include general, specialty and cross-disciplinary studies in engineering management, both theoretical and applied, and studies related to engineering management education worldwide.

Aims and Scope
Green management in construction has become an important issue in strategic management, both practically and theoretically. Green management in construction refers to green practices and procedures used in the whole construction processes, by integrating green ideas (i.e. environmental protection, energy saving, carbon emissions and pollution reduction) to meet the sustainable development requirements.
On one hand, the green practices in the construction industry have largely improved the development of green management. On the other hand, the question of how construction companies can reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions so as to decrease their projects’ impact on natural environment and increase their competitiveness has been a central topic in green construction literature.
Thus, this special issue on Frontiers of Engineering Management aims to bring the voices of those neighboring disciplines into green management on construction research. Such a cross-disciplinary approach holds promise not only for advancing green management theories, but for improvement in business practices. Topics to be covered include, but are not limited to:
  ●  Green technology applications
  ●  Green management and project governance
  ●  Contractor’s green governance structure
  ●  Green management and competitiveness
  ●  Green management and performance
