Green Building Is Up, But There’s a Certification Gap

Dodge’s latest SmartMarket Report on green building details global sustainability trends to watch.

Green building is rapidly becoming more prevalent globally, though the importance of certifications has slightly declined. Use of green products is expected to grow. And reduced energy consumption and operating costs are two of the biggest drivers of these trends.

That’s all according to the Dodge Data & Analytics 2021 World Green Building Trends report, which presents detailed trend data based on a survey of 1,207 building practitioners, owners, and investors around the world. This is the fourth in a series of market trend reports, which have been released by Dodge every three years since 2012.
