Green buildings add value report confirms
Buying up prime commercial property assets in UK cities and then giving them a green makeover can boost their value according to a report by a leading European green property fund.

Among the green measures introduced at 77 Gracechurch Street were a new building management system, automated meter reading, a waste management system and a ‘green committee’ to “monitor progress and performance” on the building’s environmental performance.
