Green Building Adoption Index 2017

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional


In the early 2000s, energy efficiency was for the committed few, and “green” building was a niche concept. But with the advent of strong tenant and investor interest in constructing, operating, and occupying better buildings, the concept of energy efficiency and sustainability in buildings has taken a firm hold. To quantitatively measure the growth and uptake of this phenomenon, we developed the CBRE Green Building Adoption Index. Based on a rigorous methodology, the adoption index shows the growth of ENERGY STAR and/or LEED certified space for the 30 largest U.S. office markets, both in aggregate and for each individual market, since 2005.
