Some of the trends making green building more urgent are:

  • Technology and design improvements and new thinking in the financing of energy efficiency improvements;
  • Projected local and global growth which drives resource constraints and increasing building and operating costs
  • Serious environmental concerns and the increasing societal, political and businesses desire to mitigate these concerns;
  • The necessity to enhance the collaboration within and across industries, government and civil society to eliminate barriers and align the interests of stakeholders to ensure the rapid and comprehensive adoption of green building practices
  • The important contribution that healthy, affordable and energy efficient homes have on the welfare and security of the nation for all income levels;
  • The productivity gains, innovation and other financial benefits that derive from excellent, sustainable design in office buildings and industrial facilities;
  • The attractiveness of environmentally responsible design in retail spaces increasingly desired by informed customers and its role in providing a high profile example for the public on sustainable business.
