The Green Building Revolution
• An average organization has a 10-20 percent turnover in employees per year. Losing a good employee can cost a company between $50,000 to $150,000.
• Green buildings have been found to reduce employee turnover and can save an organization valuable money.
The Green Building Revolution introduces readers to the basics of green building and to the projects and people that are advancing this movement. With interviews and case studies, it shows readers why and how to start thinking about designing, building, and operating high performance, environmentally aware buildings on conventional budgets.
The Green Building Revolution describes the many revolutions that are taking place today: in commercial buildings, schools, universities, public buildings, health care institutions, housing, property management, and neighborhood design. Yudelson outlines the broader journey to sustainability influenced by the green building revolution and provides a solid business case for accelerating this trend.
