LEED For Existing Buildings: The Economics of Green

Registration not required

Executive Summary

As more organizations adopt green building practices, speculations about the positive financial impact of going green are becoming increasingly substantiated. The U.S. Green Building Council's (USGBC) family of LEED Rating Systems recognizes building practices that are environmentally responsible, healthy for building occupants, as well as profitable. The new LEED for Existing Buildings (LEED-EB) Rating System guides the process of operating and upgrading buildings in a sustainable way over their lifecycles, and affords a new opportunity for existing buildings to cash in on the benefits of operating green.
