According to the report, The Green Home Builder: Navigating for Success in a Down Economy, almost half of the builders find that building green makes marketing for their businesses easier, and 21 percent of the builders expect 90 percent of their projects to be green in 2009.

The region with most green building growth is the Pacific, while the East South Central area of the country is experiencing the lowest growth in this sector.
