HOUSTON - The city No. five on a list of the country’s “greenest” office markets, falling one spot from last year, according to the Green Building Adoption Index, a joint project of CBRE Group Inc. and Maastricht University.

Despite the downgrade, the amount of Houston’s green office space is considerably higher than the national average of 38.7 percent.

More than half of the office space in this area — 52.9 percent — is considered green, which the group defines as holding either an EPA Energy Star label, U.S. Green Building Council LEED certification or both.
