Green building is now counted as a business imperative

According to the World Green Building Trends survey by the McGraw Hill Construction, 51 percent of companies anticipate that more than 60 percent of their works will be green by the end of 2015. The research shows that green building now makes good business sense.
Moreover, the accelerating green trend is not limited by geography but spreading throughout the global construction marketplace. Many countries that are listed on Lamudi, a global property portal focusing on the emerging markets, now feature a high selection of eco-friendly properties.
In April, Lamudi published research that showed the extent to which the green building trend is sweeping the emerging markets. On the Lamudi platform, cities like Karachi (Pakistan), Dhaka (Bangladesh) Amman (Jordan) or Yangon, the largest city of Myanmar, top the emerging markets for eco-friendly homes.
These cities have the highest number of properties for sale or rent offering green features, including a high energy efficiency rating, solar panels, water tanks and greywater systems. The Pakistani city of Karachi, for instance, now has more than 8200 eco-friendly properties listed on the website.
