The Business Case for Green Building: A Review of the Costs and Benefits for Developers, Investors and Occupants

This report by the World Green Building Council highlights the large number of compelling benefits green buildings bestow on different stakeholders throughout the life cycle of a building.

The comprehensive report examines whether or not it’s possible to attach a financial value to the cost and benefits of green buildings. Today, green buildings can be delivered at a price comparable to conventional buildings and investments can be recouped through operational cost savings and, with the right design features, create a more productive workplace.

While some of the issues in the report will not be news to many people, their collection into one single, clear, referenced report is very useful. Particularly interesting are the sections on productivity and asset value which may provide new drivers for convincing businesses who are not yet overly affected by energy prices.
