Strong Value for Green
questions have arisen about the potential crushing effects
of the current economic
situation on the trend toward green commercial building and
retrofitting, a team of researchers have concluded that the
value of green building remains strong.
Among them is Nils Kok,
a professor at Maatricht University in the Netherlands nd
visiting scholar at the University of California at
Berkeley. Speaking at a workshop hosted by the California
Center for Sustainable Energy in San Diego, Kok presented an
analysis of the financial performance of green office
buildings in the United States. The study is based on actual
market transactions and not simply engineering estimates.
Kok said that office
buildings with energy efficiency certification can command
higher rents, expect better occupancy rates and garner a
greater sale value. The initial study was published in 2008,
but follow-up analysis in October 2009 showed these values
held even during the global economic crisis.
The studies focused on
nearly 2,700 office buildings with either ENERGY STAR
or LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental
Design) ratings in cities across the nation and some 22,000
comparable, non-green office buildings located within a
quarter mile of the certified buildings.
The researchers found
that green buildings have rental rates that are tow percent
higher per square foot than otherwise identical nearby
buildings. When the rates are adjusted for building
occupancy levels and rental concessions, the premium rises
to above six percent.
At the average size of
the buildings in the study, the estimated annual rent
increase for green building is almost USD241,000, giving the
building an increased sale value of about USD4.7 million
more than comparable unrated buildings in close proximity.
"This study provides
the first credible evidence on the economic value of the
certification of 'green' or energy-efficient buildings in
the commercial sector," KoK said. "In trying to encourage
the development of a more sustainably built environmental,
it is important to be able to demonstrate to investors and
developers that there is financial benefit from investing in
buildings with energy efficient certification
can command higher rents, expect better
occupancy rates and garner a greater sale value
As with all real estate, Kok
said, it's about, "location, location, location" - except
the news for green building isn't as good. As it turns out,
in the more desirable and expensive locations, there is less
value to being green. He is quick to add, however, there is
still a good premium and that individual building
characteristics play a big role in sale value.
observations about green buildings in the study:
• Substantially larger on
• Higher occupancy rates
• More likely to have net rent contracts in which
tenants pay directly for utilities
• More newer, averaging about 24 years old
• Nearly 80 per cent rated as "class A"
• More on-site amenities, such as retail shops and
• improved indoor environment might result in high
• Likely positive effect on corporate image of tenants
• Longer economic lives, less depreciation and lower
• Commercial buildings in the United States use or
30 per cent of total energy use
60 per cent of electricity
Billions of gallons of water daily
30 per cent of solid waste generated
30 to 40 per cent of all greenhouse gas emissions
