New Book on Valuing Sustainble Property Investment

I am an Environmental Studies graduate from 1979 and have just completed a book available for free that addresses some of the important financial and valuation issues surrounding sustainable property investment.
The Green Building Finance Consortium (GBFC) announces the release of Value Beyond Cost Savings: How to Underwrite Sustainable Properties, the first book dedicated to
enabling private investors to integrate the value of sustainable property investment into their decision-making. The book and complementary resources are available on its website as a free public service of the Consortium. ( A printed hard-copy book will be available for $35.00 in March 2010.

Rapid market change has significantly increased the demand for sustainable properties by tenants, investors, and regulators, but decision-making has not evolved, limiting investment to what can be justified based on operating cost savings alone. Value Beyond Cost Savings meets this challenge, providing a roadmap for integrating value and risk into sustainable property decision-making, enabling larger and more profitable levels of investment.
