Commitment to Action

Measuring the SROI of Major Green Buildings

Commitment by

HDR

In 2010, HDR, Inc. committed to the measurement of sustainable return on investment, assigning monetary values to triple bottom line performance. The commitment will measure between nine and twelve different types of major 'green' buildings, with at least one example being a campus. This commitment builds on HDR's previous CGI commitments aimed at the development of a decision framework through which to assess the value of sustainability. It represents a significant step forward in the process of scaling sustainable buildings as it will provide objective, transparent, and monetary-unit based feedback that answers the question, 'What is in it for me, my company, organization, community, region and world?' Decision makers that are interested in the retrofit or development of sustainable buildings need to answer that question.
