About this Survey:
The drive for sustainability and a cleaner economy presents opportunities and challenges for managing real estate and corporate location decisions. Following up from a survey conducted in 2013, we are asking corporate real estate managers, location consultants, and economic developers to identify how air quality affects location decisions.
Recent studies by Accenture, Ernst & Young and Grail Research have confirmed private sector leadership in the transition to a cleaner, greener economy. Not only is there a growing consumer demand for green products, but sustainability and environmental issues are major elements in considering business risk. The drive for sustainability and a cleaner economy and environment present opportunities and challenges for managing real estate and corporate location decisions. One issue that presents both challenges and opportunities is air quality. Notably, a 2011 EPA study estimated that, in 2010 alone, the Clean Air Act of 1990 prevented 13 million lost workdays. Unfortunately, there is very little research or information on how these issues and affect corporate decision making. The survey is designed to analyze the effect that air quality and other environmental factors have on site selection.
