The Economic Value of Green Building
Wednesday, Aug 19, 2015
A common misconception about green building is that it is more costly than conventional routes. Even though the “green” that most people are concerned about is money, the economic value of green building is often ignored. Projects in the New York City area have the added hurdle of convincing a myriad of different groups - developers, investors, landlords and governmental agencies, to name a few – that pursuing a greener path makes economic sense. Long-term benefits are pushed aside for short-term, yet shortsighted gains to the bottom line. Speakers will explain the economic advantages of green building and ways to finance it.
Speakers: Chris Benedict - Chris Benedict, R.A.; Steve Bluestone, Partner - The Bluestone Organization: & Posie Constable, Director of Business Development - NYCEEC
