We have investigated and located a number of excellent options for small businesses that are looking for “green” space to work out of in Greater Boston. Our data service is constantly updated and we can specify the criteria that you need. There are dozens of options. The region contains a high number of LEED-certified buildings which are operated in a way to enhance user health and comfort. Some of these buildings are owned by the most progressive landlords in the country, such as Boston Properties, who recognize that green features in their buildings are a way of reducing operations risk and other risk factors. They also make the building better for the occupants – especially your coworkers!
When you choose a green buildings, you are telling your colleagues and anyone who might be a future employees that you care about their work environment. You are saying that your company has values that are beyond the financial bottom line – you are concerned about the triple bottom line of economics, society, and the environment. Whether you own or rent certified green space, you are sending a message to clients, customers, the capital markets, and the community that you are running your business in an ethical manner. You are incorporating a longer-term view.
