Green Building and LEED®

In case you haven’t noticed, there has been a major shift in architecture and construction practices toward healthy, energy-efficient and environmentally friendly buildings. Consumers are driving these trends as their awareness of growing environmental and health issues raises cause for concern. More customers than ever are making buying decisions based on the concept that they can “vote with their dollars” by supporting companies and establishments that not only share their concerns, but that also visibly demonstrate real efforts to be better corporate citizens and neighbors.

One way that smart businesses are improving their environmental and social credibility is by building and operating their real estate in a way that supports the health and wellness of their customers, employees and the communities they serve. Because the construction and ongoing operations of commercial real estate have such a large negative environmental impact, building owners are increasingly striving to earn certifications for green building practices at their new and existing properties. LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) and the U.S. EPA’s ENERGY STAR are two of the most popular environmental labels that a building can earn to distinguish itself in the eyes of customers and the real estate market.

Since most green building rating systems recognize the fact that building energy-efficiency issues are front and center in the battle against climate change and environmental degradation, buildings that implement smart energy-efficiency and renewable energy strategies (like geothermal) are well-positioned to earn these valuable green certifications.
