National Green Adoption Index 2014
To quantify and understand the dynamics of this growing marketplace for “green” buildings, CBRE engaged an academic research team experienced in commercial real estate research to conduct this study. Their work, the first published results of the CBRE Real Green Research Challenge, is the initial broad effort to map the adoption of “green” space in the 30 largest U.S. commercial office markets (representing more than two-thirds of the total U.S. office market). Based on rigorous methodology, the work was executed in close collaboration with the USGBC and CBRE Research. This publication provides the inaugural results of the Green Building Adoption Index. Following this initial publication, the Green Building Adoption Index for commercial office space will be published on an annual basis.
