USGBC recently released LEED in Motion – People and Progress, the first report in an inaugural LEED in Motion series. People And Progress quantifies recent growth in LEED certification and accreditation for buildings and people and provides infographics that capture the current state of professional LEED usage.
Highlights of the report indicate that as much as 55% of all commercial and institutional construction in the US may be green by 2016, up from 44% in 2012, and that more than 4.3 million people currently live and work in LEED certified buildings. Additionally, more than 6.2 million people experience a LEED certified project every day. These numbers exemplify the strength and momentum of the green building movement across the country.
Much of the aforementioned growth is attributable to USGBC’s 13,000 member organizations, ranging from Fortune 100 corporations to small neighborhood businesses, representing 13 million employees and $1.8 trillion in combined revenue.
People and Progress is the first of three reports in the LEED in Motion series; Places and Policies and Impacts and Innovation are scheduled to be released later in the year.
The full report can be downloaded here.
