A green and natural workplace is is more than just "nice". Green is our natural habitat. Natural materials feel like home. A room with a view litterally creates space and green also purifies and humidifies the air so that the typical dry sick building suddenly becomes like our natural -urban- jungle.
Average costs of greenery are € 120 per employee per year. Revenues of various research say a green office environment results in 20% to 40% more productivity, 20% to 80% increase in happiness and sense of peace and satisfaction, 10% to 20% better concentration levels, 10 to 30% less health problems due to dry air.

Daylight lamps are already used for a long time. But, recent research shows that there is more to light than that. In nature the sun rises and falls. People can look far and see how the day progresses. Also, the light at midday contains much more yellow than light at the end of the day. This change in intensity and color is called the circadian light cycle and nowadays can be brought into the office space. Sound is another environmental stressor that needs proper attention. Too much sound makes people feel stressed. Too much silence on the other hand can make people feel unsafe.
We now translate management costs of light- and sound into € 30 per employee per year. These costs must be further researched and explained. There is growing research though on the benefits. Employees who work in environments with natural light and reassuring sounds reported a 60 to 70% higher level of well-being and are 10 to 15% more productive.
