New and Retrofit Green Schools: The Cost Benefits and Influence of a Green School on its Occupants

Download Report

This report, published by McGraw-Hill Construction, reveals that K-12 and higher education institutions are achieving significant benefits from their green school efforts-both in improved health, wellbeing and performance, but also teacher and faculty satisfaction. The resulting data and intelligence provides a pulse on the green education market and how it will evolve over time.

The study was produced with the support of the U.S. Green Building Council Center for Green Schools, Lutron, Project Frog and Siemens. Survey and data partners included the Council of Educational Facility Planners International, The American Institute of Architects, Associated General Contractors of America, Green Schools National Network, National Association of Independent Schools, National Building Museum, Society for College and University Planning and Second Nature.

We are in the middle of one of those rare moments when the right thing to do is also the economically smart thing to do.
