2011 Green Building Opportunity Index
Annual Green Building Opportunity Index marries real estate economics with green design metrics.
Why does one market tend to have more U.S. Green Building Council LEED Certified buildings than another? What is the impact of vacancy rates, utility incentives, or public policies on the feasibility and economics of "going green?" In the 2011 study, Cushman & Wakefield and NEEA's BetterBricks initiative have published the 2011 Green Building Opportunity Index - a comprehensive ranking of the top 30 U.S. markets for green buildings. The annual Green Building Opportunity Index remains the first office market assessment tool to provide weighted comparisons of top U.S. markets on the basis of both real estate fundamentals and green development considerations.
