Sustainable Building Construction Growth

According to a recent study by Deloitte & Touche, an estimated 40% – 48% of new commercial construction will embed sustainable building practices (e.g., USGBC LEED) by 2015. In addition, the sustainable construction portion of the largest commercial retrofit and renovation activity will more than triple, growing to 25% - 33%. Embedding sustainable building practices into CRE strategies, in addition to measuring and communicating performance, can enhance brand value. Also, quantifying and verifying sustainability performance will become increasingly important as external reporting standards continue to be developed.
