How to Sell Green: A Building / Real Estate Professional's
Guide to Making the Case

Clients can be skeptical. They can care, but maybe not enough to make the extra effort and spend the extra money. And more often then not, they think they have an idea of what "green" is, but at best... that idea is vague and confused. So how do we do it? How do we sell this "green"? This 1.5-hour discussion is designed to break down the issues, opportunities and talking points for selling green building attributes to potential clients.
