The continuous growth of Green Buildings

The Environmental Leader website had posted an article regarding news of Green Buildings exceeding Construction growth as a whole.

Entitled “Green Building Outpaces Overall Construction”, the said post remarked that, according to a study made by the U.S. Green Building Council: “By 2018, the study finds, green construction will account for more than 3.3 million US jobs — more than one-third of the entire US construction sector — and generate $190.3 billion in labor earnings. The industry’s direct contribution to US Gross Domestic Product is also expected to reach $303.5 billion from 2015-2018.” Jessica Lyons Hardcastle, Environmental Leader. http://www.environmentalleader.com/2015/09/16/green-building-outpaces-overall-construction-growth/

More growth, more jobs

As stated, the steady increase of green buildings being built leaves a positive effect on the economy, with more jobs being created. David Erne, a senior associate at Booz Allen, remarks “Our research shows that green building has created millions of jobs and contributed hundreds of billions of dollars to the U.S. economy, with the construction of LEED- certified buildings accounting for about 40 percent of green construction’s overall contribution to GDP in 2015.”

Supporting the growth of green buildings

With the public’s general perception that green buildings are being built and supported only by the minority, this assumption gradually subsides as awareness grows.

The improving direction brought forth by green buildings provides not only the environmental benefits and long term gains for future generations, it could also help propel other organizations to pay more attention that possibly leads to positive action.
