GBI Research’s new report, “Green Buildings Market to 2015 - Incentives for Green Initiatives and Minimum Level of Standards to Boost Growth Opportunities” provides the key analysis and forecast market of the global green buildings market. This report covers the key market trends and growth forecasts for a global construction industry. 

This report contains a detailed technical overview of these buildings and their specifications. The report includes a fair deal of discussion regarding the key restraints, key drivers, policy framework, global programs, and industry trends. 

Green buildings are increasingly seen as a silver bullet to counter the threats of climate change, resource scarcity, and the widening energy supply-demand gap. Buildings are responsible for approximately 30% of raw material use, account for 40 % of world’s energy consumption and contribute more carbon emissions than transportation sector. 

Given the inefficiencies of existing building stock worldwide coupled with the impact of the massively growing construction activities, GHG emissions from buildings will more than double in the next 20 years, if not checked. 

Policy makers thus understand that if targets for greenhouse gas emissions reductions are to be met, rapid achievement of low-emission buildings should be a linchpin of national climate change strategy. Governments across the globe have adopted a wide range of strategies including financial or structural incentives and policy instruments such as mandatory labeling and certification programs and building codes to encourage green buildings. 

The two-pronged strategy of incentivizing green initiatives and enforcing a minimum level of standards bodes well for the development of green buildings. This report is built using data and information sourced from proprietary databases, primary and secondary research and in-house analysis by GBI Research’s team of industry experts.
