Financial Benefits of Green Building
Whether you are an investor looking for ways to add value to your portfolio or a homeowner who wants to save money on energy and water costs, green buildings can offer financial benefits. They are more desirable on the open market, and they help property owners attract tenants who are willing to pay higher rents for a building that will conserve resources.
Aside from saving money, green buildings also benefit the environment and people. For instance, they reduce air pollution by using less energy and reducing the amount of toxic chemicals that are emitted into the atmosphere from materials used in construction.
Improved Health & Wellbeing
A healthy, eco-friendly workplace helps employees feel better and work more efficiently. They experience lower levels of stress, which results in reduced absenteeism and lower medical bills.
Increased Occupant Productivity
A healthy environment leads to increased productivity in employees, which can increase a company’s profits. In addition, employees who work in green buildings are more likely to be satisfied with their job and stay with the company.
Reductions in Waste & Pollution
The environmental benefits of green building extend beyond the physical structure to include improving air quality, increasing employee satisfaction, and promoting a healthy and sustainable environment for all. These benefits can be realized through improved indoor air quality (IAQ) and incorporating sustainable materials and practices into the building design process.
