Eco Thinking: Green Building Market & Impact Report

GreenBiz.com has put together “The Green Building Market & Impact Report 2011” that explores how, and how much, commercial green buildings live up to their name. It is the only report that examines whether green buildings are engendering demonstrable energy and environmental improvement. This year’s Report findings are both encouraging and cautionary. Overall, LEED building registrations have made a major comeback compared with last year and individual buildings’ impact in reducing the overall environmental footprint of construction and operations have improved. However, slowdowns in certain key segments demonstrates that significant additional progress is possible and indeed necessary on both the individual building level and in terms of market penetration if LEED is to contribute in a meaningful way to reducing the environmental footprint of buildings in the U.S. and worldwide.
