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.
Costs of building green vs. industry perception of costs
Studies show a pattern of green buildings being able to more easily attract tenants and to command higher rents and sale prices. Local market conditions have a significant impact on the value of green buildings. 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
Evaluate design and investment decisions for impact on value over the life of the building. Proactively collect and report data from all regions, climates and building types. Incorporate risk factors such as climate change, regulation and tenant demand and into portfolio assessments. Look for opportunities to expand thinking from individual buildings to the greater urban environment
Look for partnership opportunities: –Bring stakeholders together from the beginning of the design process through building operations –Owners and tenants can team up to get the best results from buildings. –Work with government to create the right policies for green buildings to thrive.
