2015 Green Building Economic Impact Study: Key Findings

The 2015 U.S. Green Building Council Green Building Economic Impact Study, prepared by Booz Allen Hamilton (BAH) quantifies the economic value of green building and LEED construction. Impacts are measured in gross domestic product (GDP), jobs, labor earnings, and environmental asset indicators at the national level and for states.
The study finds that the trajectory of the green building sector of the U.S. construction industry is slated for expansive growth. To date, green building has created millions of jobs and contributed hundreds of billions of dollars to the U.S. economy. Not surprisingly, LEED is a pivotal contributor to this total impact.
