Green Building Boosts U.S. Economy

Green building will support 7.9 million U.S. jobs and push $554 billion into the American economy, including $396 billion in wages, from 2009 to 2013, according to a study from the U.S. Green Building Council and Booz Allen Hamilton. The study also found that green construction spending currently supports more than 2 million American jobs and generates more than $100 billion in gross domestic product and wages. 11/13 HCN http://www.usgbc.org/DisplayPage.aspx?CMSPageID=1954
