Abstract
Green buildings are already on the way to becoming global practice for residential and non-residential buildings. Real estate actors around the globe have developed business models to build profitable businesses around green buildings.

“New construction needs to address the needs of future generations,” says Michael Bauer, Partner at Drees & Sommer, one of Europe’s leading real estate consulting companies. “In buildings with lifetimes of 40+ years, future customers place increasing value on environmental performance, health and well-being. To achieve high quality buildings, energy efficient building design and technologies are essential tools. Certification is one of the signs of quality that translates technological achievements into economic value for the developer. This often offsets the additional time and cost required to achieve certifications”

Commercial and office buildings in central urban locations currently make up the vast majority of certified green buildings in Germany. The trend is similar in other countries. Businesses want to reduce their occupancy costs (which include energy costs) and increase productivity – and

green buildings can help them achieve both.
