Value Beyond Cost Savings: How to Underwrite Sustainable Properties

This book enables private investors to integrate the value of sustainable property investment into their decision-making process. While cost savings has been the primary criteria for investment in “green” property in the past, the author provides a roadmap for integrating “sustainable value” and risk into decision-making for specific properties and also addresses sustainable property failure and underperformance. Related topics include sustainable property development cost, green leases, energy investment, health and productivity benefits analysis, key trends in performance measurement, public benefits of sustainable properties, risk analysis and more. Also available as free downloads: the book and several expanded chapters for in-depth coverage of selected topics. Author: Scott Muldavin, CRE
