Green = Productive

We've been talking about this for a while, so it should come as no surprise that a new study by the University of San Diego and CBRE found that employees working in green buildings are more productive than those in traditional buildings. Some juicy tidbits:

  • 45% reported that they had experienced 2.88 fewer sick days on average
  • 54.5% reported being more productive
  • Present value financial benefits could range from $37 to $55 per square foot
