CBRE Study Finds Green Buildings Investment Advantage

Friday, October 21, 2011
Environmentally-sustainable buildings generate a stronger return on investment, according to a national study of green buildings by CBRE Group and cited in this article from Greenbang. The study, which has tracked about 150 CBRE-managed LEED-certified buildings over three years, found that they enjoy a 3.1 percent advantage in rental rates and occupancy over standard buildings.

Once a green building is built, an essential part of continuing green operations is waste recycling. Recycling spent fluorescent lamps, ballasts, batteries, and electronics can be cost-effective, is important to protecting the environment from hazardous materials like mercury, and can even generate bottom-line benefits like positive green PR and reduced facility liability.

The EasyPak™ prepaid mail-in program makes it simple to recycle these wastes--and prove and publicize recycling efforts--with easy-to-use containers and online tools like Recycling Reports and official Certificates of Recycling.
