Green Building a bright spot!

by John Hamlin 20. November 2008 06:00

The Boston Business Journal reported today on a study by McGraw-Hill Construction that found the value of Green Construction starts was up five-fold from 2005 to 2008.  The most positive aspect of the report was the forecast that Green Building practices are expected to triple by 2013.  The full report is available for sale at McGraw Hill Construction web site for sale. 

I have not paid the $150 to purchase the report, however I do find the trends and outlook for conservation and Green Building to be positive.  My bet is that consumers are recognizing the direct savings in building well and in an environmentally friendly fashion.  We at Green Benefits are here to encourage the awareness and growth in all aspects of living in a sustainable manner.  If you know of other reports that we should be referencing, both positive and negative, please post your comment below with a link to the information.
