By |October 6th, 2015|

By |September 23rd, 2015|

(Griswold Water Systems’ Wave 2.0™ and IntegraClean 2.0™ garner LEED points for innovation and as part of a strategy for water savings)

A new report from the US Green Business Council found green construction has generated some $167.4bn in the last three years and supported more than 2m jobs – but some critics say the current LEED certification system is faulty.
Green building construction is on track to make up a quarter of the US construction market this year, according to a new report from the US Green Business Council (USGBC) released this week.
The report, prepared for the USGBC by Booz Allen Hamilton, found green construction in the US has generated $167.4bn in the last three years, supporting more than 2.1m jobs and yielding $147.7bn in earnings for construction workers.
It forecasts the green building construction market will grow 15.1% annually – outpacing the 9% expected growth in overall construction starts this year – from $150.6bn in 2015 to $224.4bn in 2018. By 2018, more than one third of all construction will be green, the report predicts.
“Estimates of the economic impact of green building construction for 2015-18 show a significant increase in impact on GDP, jobs and labor earnings as compared to 2011-14,” the report’s authors wrote.
