CCBJ Vol I No 10: Green Building

In this special green building edition, CCBJ estimates the U.S. green building industry at $45 billion in 2007 in terms of value of green buildings put in place during the calendar year. Annual growth has been 30-40% from 2004-2007, after 50-60% growth in 2001-2003 when EBI Inc. started estimating the value of green buildings based on certification data, total construction data, interviews and surveys of practitioners and experts.
