Advancing green building through sustainable finance
According to the World Green Building Council, the ESG reporting industry will continue growing in the coming decades, with new sustainable finance tools emerging to measure criteria within organizations transparently, providing investors with an improved ability to compare investment options.
- Green finance: The financing industry provides financing incentives to build green.
- Green bond: A fixed-income financial instrument designed to raise money for projects that will benefit the environment.
- Green lease: An agreement where tenants commit or receive incentives to participate in energy and water conservation, waste reduction and other sustainable actions.
