Policy's Dramatic Impact on Green Buildings: The Global Hotspots

Buildings consume the majority of the world's energy and are responsible for a majority of the anthropogenic carbon dioxide emissions. Energy security, environmental, and livability concerns are driving governments across the world to adopt policy measures promoting green buildings. Policy measures, along with the ability to pay, payback periods, and addressable market size, should determine a firm's decision on which countries to invest precious market development funds in. In this report, we examine 21 countries on the Lux Nations Ranking Chart and project how the unique policy drivers in each country create an opportunity for specific green-building technologies.
