A recent report from McGraw-Hill Construction and Siemens Building Technologies says most corporate leaders are interested in sustainability and green building technology. The majority of those leaders are now examining proactive ways to make sustainability a consistent part of their companies’ missions.
The report shows 60 percent of all CEOs recognize the financial benefits of green building and 67 percent of them see a specific operating cost benefit from green practices. Sixty percent of corporate leaders also see the market differentiation sustainability activities and green building can provide. The survey also notes risk is no longer the primary reason for a company to go green. The driving factors are now financial savings and corporate image.
