Source: Energy Live News

The global green building industry is tipped to double in the next two years.

The number of companies expecting to have more than 60% of their building projects certified green could more than double by 2018, according to a new study.

That’s a rise from 18% currently to 37% in just two years, it states.

The report, which includes a survey of more than 1,000 building professionals from 69 countries, adds the growth will be largely driven by countries that still have developing green markets.

It claims businesses in China, India, Mexico, Saudi Arabia and Brazil are reporting “dramatic growth” in demand for green certification.

The emerging economies are expected to be the “engines of green growth” in the next three years, with development varying from twofold to sixfold.

It also reveals expansion will continue in developed countries like the US, Germany and the UK.
