The Benefits Of Going GREEN >>>
Example 1: a recent California study that had completely committed to a green program demonstrated an increase of 5-7% of employee productivity and reduced energy and water costs of up to 30%. There was obviously a significant cost decrease to clean and maintain that building.
Example 2: a Lawrence Berkeley study showed a significant reduction in health care costs including: 9-20% reduction in respiratory diseases and an 18-25% reduction in allergies and asthma. This would generate an estimated savings of $17-$48 billion annually in lost work and health care costs.
Example 3: several education facilities had seen greater attendance rates after implementing a green program including Syracuse, NY which witnessed an 11.7% increase in attendance resulting in an additional $2.5 million in state funding.
In addition to the above examples, several states offer tax credits as an incentive for people to go "green" and many rental properties are receiving higher rental income for offering their tenants a "green" environment.
