Executive Report From ProEst: The green building industry, spurred in part by the Energy Crisis in the 1970s, has continued to gain traction in the United States and around the world, helped along by a growing awareness of environmental issues and increased government support. Today, sustainable non-residential construction projects employ 278,460* workers, and job growth is expected to be faster than the industry average through 2028, at about 10%. That’s good news for contractors with an interest in the sustainable building field. With more demand for ecofriendly structures, “green”-qualified construction companies could well be on a path to greater growth and profitability.
In this Executive Insight report, ProEst takes a closer look at how sustainable building is changing the construction industry, and why “going green” can represent an important new business opportunity — and continued market viability — for your construction company.
