Green Buildings Could Be Half U.S. Projects, Worth $248 Billion By 2016 | Cross River Real Estate

Green building may represent more than half of all commercial and institutional construction as soon as 2016. CleanTechnica looks into a new report from the USGBC entitled “LEED in Motion: People and Progress,” that details green building’s exponential growth and outlines both the value of the industry and its reach into American Lives. Among the highlights:

  • More than 4.3 million people live and work in LEED-certified buildings
  • More than 6.2 million people interact with LEED projects every day during their daily routine
  • Green building represented 44 percent of all commercial and institutional construction in the U.S. in 2012, and this percentage should increase to 55 percent by 2016.
