10 of 15

Global Green USA released its Green Schools Report in August 2005, touting the numerous financial, health, academic, and environmental advantages of high-performance, environmentally sustainable buildings for educational facilities.

Global Green’s report, available at (www.globalgreen.org), outlines numerous advantages of building green schools, including:

  • Improved learning. Students progressed 20- to 26- percent faster in classrooms with the most daylight.
  • Increased attendance. Better indoor air quality leads to fewer absences from illness.
  • Lower operating costs. Districts can save 20 to 40 percent on utility costs for new schools.
  • Reduced energy dependence. With on-site solar power, schools can further reduce electricity costs and reduce dependence on the energy grid.
