The 39th Annual Crocker Symposium - Turning “Green” into Greenbacks
In the rapidly evolving world of "green building" economics, key questions are emerging. This panel will address today's most compelling green questions, including: What are the financial costs and benefits of incorporating green features? Are underwriting standards changing to recognize the lower operating costs of high efficiency buildings? Does retrofitting an existing building to obtain LEED-EBOM certification pay off and over what time horizon? Will the energy efficiency benchmarking for commercial buildings under AB 1103 provide the metrics to value sustainable features? And, which green building features contribute most to increased property valuation and decreased operating costs?
