Last night I came across a new infographic that featured my pre-NEOSCC, Sustainable Rhythm (http://sustainrhythm.wordpress.com/) market research work. The graphic published by Green Building Canada is entitled Why Build Green? and includes data from the Opening the Door to Green Building Studies that I completed. I thought some of you would appreciate taking a look … http://greenbuildingcanada.ca/2012/why-build-green-infographic/
A little background on the studies…
Opening the Door to Green Building Communications Study, 2010-2011 – Three studies (N=550): Alberta, North Carolina and Ohio.
This analysis, one of the first of its kind, engaged multiple perspectives (owners, facility managers, consultants, product companies, real estate and contractors) in the building industry to examine issues of the overall market, the perception of the financial investment, the role of certifications and finally how the benefits of green building and energy efficiency are being communicated among building design and construction professionals. Studies have been featured in CBS News Moneywatch, Environmental Leader, USGBC Chapter Newsletter Hot Topics, Journal of Commerce, Eco-Homes Newsletter, Structural Engineering News, Chicago Real Estate Agent Magazine, Ann Arbor.com BuildBest White Paper Library totaling over 40 publications.
This was in my sole proprietorship days running a consulting company called Sustainable Rhythm.
BTW… I am still blogging here (infrequently) in my spare time… and tweeting at @sustainrhythm. Who knows, maybe the Rhythm Report can be resurrected at some point?
