In Spring 2014 the CaGBC commissioned a research report from McGraw Hill Construction that examined the current and projected growth, drivers and obstacles, and impact on tenants and occupants.

Initial results were presented at Building Lasting Change 2014, and now we are pleased to be making the full report available to the public.
As a part of this market research, McGraw Hill created a sub report based on a survey of a select group of Canadian companies that lease or rent space in a commercial office space and their tenants. This report looks at the value they place on specific green building features and practices and how green building impacts overall employee health and productivity, and corporate responsibility.
