“Green buildings have up to a 20 percent higher occupancy rate. those tenants enjoy a much healthier environment, as leed buildings have cleaner, healthier indoor environmental quality. they also tend to be more productive. a recent study in the journal of organizational behavior found that companies that adopt more rigorous environmental standards are 16 percent more productive than those that don’t.” — Kevin McNeely
