About the Project:
This project aims to demonstrate the profitability of building investments with green building certificates, which are based on reducing the negative impacts of the real estate on the environment, in order to promote clean energy use along with sustainable city and environment and also to guide real estate companies towards these types of investments. It also investigates the impacts of more investments to be realized by real estate companies in the buildings with green building certification, which is a sustainability criterion in the US, on the companies' performances.
The project has revealed that the financial performance of the company increases as the rate of green buildings in the real estate portfolio increases. Also, it's been found out that the increase in green building investments reduces the exposure of the company to market risk.
