The Green Mandate for Commercial Real Estate

The Green Mandate for Commercial Real Estate - Green Building - LEED - Commercial Property - United States


Green building standards may not seem to be on the front burner of commercial real estate as much this year as last, simply because very little new development is breaking ground these days. Yet think and planning and policy shifts regarding sustainable real estate go on, anticipating the day when development will begin again.



Perhaps one of the most far-reaching of these shifts is the slow movement from voluntary green standards to green mandates. In the United States, LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) by the U.S. Green Building Council is the commercial real estate hallmark of such green building standards, but previously the standards were all voluntary.
