Research on Green Buildings is growing. A recent and apparently comprehensive study by a Dutch researcher identifies a number of benefit, for owners and developers, of green building. This is borne out in my own experience. We have been working with a real estate investment trust to assess their portfolio for potential LEED EB certification. They have said that non-green buildings are headed for rapid obsolescence. This research was reported in Environmental Building News under the title Non-Green Office Buildings Sacrifice 8% in Rent Revenues. The direct link is at Sustainable Property Research.
