A study sponsored by the Green Building Council sees major spending on green building in the U.S. for the next four years. The study finds almost 8 million jobs supported and nearly a half trillion dollars in green building economic activity through 2013. The current level of green building activity is estimated at two million jobs and $100 billion in GDP.

“Our goal is for the phrase ‘green building’ to become obsolete, by making all building and retrofits green – and transforming every job in our industry into a green job,” said Rick Fedrizzi, president, CEO and founding chairman of USGBC.
