And at health care provider Kaiser Permanente, workers can use a bike-share program to move about the company’s campus or clear their heads with a trail ride.

The property industry has been seeking clear evidence of the financial benefits of investing in sustainable property for some time. Identifying a specific value differential associated with sustainability credentials would be useful to justify the commitment of funds to the development of “greener” buildings, or improving the performance of existing stock.
