These companies are committed to green measures, reducing their utility bills while adopting a more pragmatic approach to energy efficiency. This undertaking includes reengineering their business processes and operations.  These companies also invest heavily in research and innovation reducing the overall cost of production. This gives them a competitive edge over other firms, attracting a host of new investors.

Employee Engagement

Oftentimes, companies that commit themselves to sustainable ways of operating the business have a high rate of employee productivity. Encouraging innovation is one of the many reasons for high employee morale.

Better Quality of Life

Green buildings that use special materials like solar window films protect residents and staff members from harmful UV rays, thus improving their overall health. Many California buildings are special LEED certified to provide better quality of life and reduce overall illness often caused by a lack of Vitamin D. This helps a building attract more tenants and higher rents in the long run. In commercial and industrial buildings, workers take less number of sick leaves improving productivity.
