COGfx Study 2: Buildingomics – A New Approach to Green Building
Join Urban Green Council and the New York Academy of Sciences for a special NYC briefing and reception as scientists from Harvard University and SUNY Upstate New York Medical Center discuss Study 2 of the groundbreaking COGfx research: Buildingomics. This exciting research builds on separate research released last year that found a 101% improvement in cognitive test scores for people that worked in optimized indoor environmental quality conditions often found in green buildings.
Now, the research scientists go a step further with Buildingomics—a new approach that examines the totality of factors in the building-related environment that influence the human health, well-being and productivity of people who work in buildings.
Learn more about how the COGfx Study 2 found improved cognitive test scores for people that worked in certified green buildings through new research covering more than 100 workers in 10 office buildings across the U.S.
This suggests an even greater benefit—and return on investment—to pursuing green building certification than originally thought.
Better buildings that result in better thinking and health can help enhance employees’ performance and well-being, serve as recruiting tools for business HR managers, and provide a differentiator, perhaps even a competitive advantage, for building owners.
