Green certifications are becoming market standard for premium office space

Did you know that in all but three of 15 major U.S. office markets, green-certified buildings account for over 50% of Class A office stock. Green certifications provide a recognized standard for measuring sustainable practices in building construction and operation. They have been around for decades, and, for many markets, they are becoming a standard characteristic of premium office spaces.

JLL Research found that cities with greater saturation of green office spaces have lower premiums. For example, green buildings in Denver represent 85% of Class A office stock and achieve a green premium of 6%. In contrast, green buildings represent only 49% of office stock but achieve 13% premiums in Austin.

In such markets, the conversation is quickly shifting beyond value creation (green premium) to value preservation (avoiding the brown discount). We are exploring this research as part of JLL’s Value of Sustainability initiative.

Take a look at the below chart and let me know if you have any questions or would like me to connected you to a JLL office or sustainability expert for more information.
