The Effects of Sustainability On Commercial Buildings
Discover our efficient and environmentally-friendly energy technology solutions


Sustainable practices used for commercial buildings range from energy-saving to the holistic approach addressing wider environmental issues such as water use, selecting sustainable materials and carefully managing waste. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, the Commercial sector accounts for approximately 19 percent of energy usage and 17 percent of greenhouse gas emissions in the United States.

High-performing buildings excel in the application of sustainability practices and their ability to maintain and enhance the comfort, health and productivity of tenants. Additionally, the number of properties attaining their IREM Sustainable Property Certification continues to grow —emphasizing the increased awareness of adopting sustainability practices. According to a 2010 McGraw Hill Construction-CBRE Survey, 79 percent of respondents (owners) expect green buildings to attract more tenants.

Buildings that have adopted sustainability practices tend to depreciate less quickly, have reduced utility costs, attract more tenants willing to pay higher rents and have higher sale prices. Implementation of sustainability practices positively supports long-term occupancy, employee productivity and even has positive effects on tenant health and well-being.
