WorldGBC Launches Project Definition

WorldGBCThe World Green Building Council (WorldGBC) is launching a global project to help define the health and productivity benefits of green office buildings are being formally launched today.

The group says the business benefits of greener, healthier buildings are being recognized by the real estate sector.

The WorldGBC’s project aims to define a common method to capturing these benefits, and to provide best practice guidance on the type of green building features – such as daylighting, ventilation and indoor office environments – that enhance them.

Corporate sponsors for the project are Jones Lang LaSalle, Lend Lease and Skanska. The Green Building Councils of Hong Kong, United Kingdom, United States and Colombia are also partnering on the project. WorldGBC has established other partnerships to promote international green building.

The benefits of green building, the WorldGBC says include:

• Up to 11% gains in productivity from improved ventilation

• Up to 23% gains in productivity from improved lighting design

• Significant improvement in employee recruitment and retention as a result of green retrofits.
