The Top 100 Green Design Firms

Text size: A A

Interest in sustainable design has been building over the past 10 years and continues to gain momentum. Further, market sectors that once looked askance at the notion of green building as an unnecessary up-front capital expense now are embracing the long-term value of energy savings promised by sustainability.

However, the market for sustainable design has not yet reached the saturation point in the construction industry, so a downturn in a few key sectors can affect the overall market. This state of affairs can be seen in the results of ENR's Top 100 Green Design Firms list. As a group, the Top 100 generated $4.18 billion in design revenue in 2012 from projects registered with and actively seeking certification from third-party ratings groups under objective sustainable-design standards, such as the U.S. Green Building Council's (USGBC) Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standards. For the group, this revenue is a 7.5% decline from the $4.50 billion in 2011.

The table below shows only rankings and firm name. For complete data from the Top Green Design Firms list see the following links.
