GLRPPR Sector Resource: Greener Practices for Business, Site Development and Site Cleanups: A Toolkit

Title:
Greener Practices for Business, Site Development and Site Cleanups: A Toolkit

Abstract:
More and more businesses, communities, and developers are benefiting directly and indirectly from embracing greener practices. A business may reduce its regulatory burden and operating costs by decreasing its environmental emissions or discharges by reducing the quantity or toxicity of inputs and wastes. Communities may watch property values increase and quality of life improve with enhanced or restored greenspace and thoughtfully designed public buildings. Developers may realize higher rents and municipalities may realize lower overhead due to decreased costs in operating and maintaining a green or high-performance site and building.
