The Skanska-sponsored World Green Building Week event leads the conversation that greener buildings can lead to increased productivity and happier, healthier occupants.

Green Building a World of Difference

World Green Building Council CEO Jane Henley spoke at the UK Green Building Council (UKGBC) event, held in London this week. She told delegates that “the journey starts here” for strengthening the business case for health, wellbeing and productivity benefits from green buildings.

Speakers from Bennetts Associates, Network Rail, and UL Environment shared their personal and organisation’s experiences of occupying green buildings. Dr Fiona Adshead, Senior Sustainability and Health Advisor, PwC said: "Fantastic buildings make you feel good, they make your heart sing."

Skanska’s industry perspective is highlighted in the UKGBC’s World Green Building Week publication ‘A world of difference’, in a column by Jennifer Clark, Director of Environment.
