We hear a lot of myths about LEED. Everything from cost to effectiveness and yet, it’s the most used green building rating system worldwide and LEED buildings are proven repeatedly to offer a greater return on investment, healthier, more productive occupants, and a greatly reduced impact on the environment. So why can it be so hard to broach that conversation with clients? Join us to discuss the business case for LEED. We’ll discuss the dollars and “sense,” return on investment, and ESG/CSR all while talking through ways to start that conversation with your clients and follow through on the results.
