Can LEED Generate More Business?
Can LEED Generate More Business?

Can energy-efficient buildings improve the financial performance of banks, and possibly other commercial enterprises? According to a study by the University of Notre Dame, the answer is yes. Using data from 2008 through 2010, the school compared the performance of 93 LEED-rated bank branches with 469 non-rated branches. Turns out the LEED-rated facilities opened 458 more consumer deposit accounts and had over $3 million more in consumer deposit balances per facility per year. Not only that, sales at LEED-certified branches increased by $461,300 per employee. Check out the full report to see how LEED certification is proving its value in more ways than one.
