Webinar registrants will get first access to this newly launched survey


In the Green Building Market & Impact Report 2009, we attempt to answer whether commercial green buildings live up to their name — that is, that they are engendering demonstrable environmental improvement. Our findings are both encouraging and cautionary. Overall, we believe that LEED buildings are making a major impact in reducing the overall environmental footprint of individual structures. However, 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.

Findings from this landmark survey include:

  • LEED 2009 & Global Green Building Market Trends
  • Worldwide impacts of LEED on
    • LEED Market Trends
    • Land Use Impacts
    • Water Efficiency Impacts
    • Energy Impacts
    • Materials Impacts
    • Indoor Environmental Quality
    • And more…

All registrants get access to a downloadable version of the Green Building Market & Impact Report 2009.
