Building green does not necessarily need to cost more. There is an overall trend in the reduction of design and build costs as markets mature. Upfront costs are often offset by a decrease in long-term life cycle costs.
To effectively reduce the construction cost of green buildings: Adopt green strategies and include them in the budget from an early stage, to avoid more expensive bolt-on strategies Hire experienced design and construction teams Use an Integrated Design Process (IDP), from pre- design phase through to post- occupancy, where all stakeholders are engaged from the very beginning Yarze -Target BREEAM Very Good Dar EL Aytam School IC School– LEED Gold
Where does the gap come from? - Inability to forget historical data – lack of awareness that costs are coming down - Showcase buildings that may have additional costly finish upgrades not related to green & - buildings featuring highly visible but non viable green tech (integrated PV, Wind, …)
How Do Green Buildings Influence Value? They attract tenants more easily (higher occupancy rates) command higher rents and sale prices. have lower operating expenses have lower yields In markets where green is more mainstream, brown discounts are emerging.
Green buildings can save money through reduced energy and water consumption and lower long-term operations and maintenance costs. Energy savings typically exceed any build cost premiums within a reasonable payback period.

Evidence shows that green design attributes can improve occupant productivity, health and well-being. Investing in better indoor environments can lead to better returns on one of every companys greatest assets - its employees.
Sustainability risk factors can significantly affect rental income and the future value of real estate assets, in turn affecting their ROI Changing tenant preferences and investor risk screening may translate into risk of obsolescence for inefficient buildings
