U.S., Australia, Germany Are Trendsetters in Green Buildings

BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Energy security, and environmental and livability concerns drive government policy on green-building technologies but eventually cost and affordability determine the extent and pace of adoption, according to Lux Research. The firm ranked 21 countries using these factors to determine the best markets for green buildings.

“Buildings are the spine of the increasingly urban world we find ourselves in, now containing over 50% of the global human population. Buildings use 40% of the world’s energy and account for 40% of the carbon dioxide emissions,” said Aditya Ranade, Lux Research Analyst and the lead author of the report titled, “Policy’s Dramatic Impact on Green Buildings: The Global Hotspots.”
