The report highlights the large number of compelling benefits from green buildings received by different stakeholders.

The World Green Building Council recently released “The Business Case for Green Building” a report that reviews the costs and benefits for developers, investors, and occupants.

The report highlights the “large number of compelling benefits from green buildings received by different stakeholders throughout the life cycle of the building.”

Attaching a financial value to the cost and benefits of green buildings can be a difficult task. But green buildings are growing in market demand as more businesses become environmentally aware, and LEED-certified buildings become more attractive.

“This report synthesizes credible evidence from around the world on green buildings into one collective resource, and the evidence presented highlights that sustainable buildings provide tangible benefits and make clear business sense,” said Jane Henley, CEO of World Green Building Council.

Benefits for green building include city-wide economic benefits, and the improved health and well-being of individual building occupants.
