Green Premium or Grey Discount? The value of green workplaces for commercial building occupiers in the UK

Green Premium or Grey Discount -The value of green workplaces for commercial building occupiers in the UK was commissioned by ULI, funded by Stanhope and conducted by the Centre for Sustainable Development at Cambridge University Engineering Department.

Taking Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) as a core indicator of buildings’ sustainability credentials, the research evaluated what occupiers of the UK office market thought about the sustainability of their workplaces and examined whether more sustainable buildings yielded higher rental values. The research also determined the expectations of occupiers regarding the sustainable workplaces of the future and highlighted the implications of sustainability for building owners and managers.
