Wednesday, September 16, 2015

By 2018, green construction will directly contribute 1.1 million jobs. Of that, LEED will be responsible for directly contributing 386,000 jobs.

THE REPORT

The report quantifies the economic impact of green building and LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) construction. Impacts are measured in gross domestic product (GDP), jobs, labor earnings, individual states’ tax contributions and environmental asset indicators at both the national and state levels.
