Green Building is the practice of creating structures and using processes that are environmentally responsible and resource-efficient throughout a building’s life-cycle from siting and lot orientation, to design, construction, operation, maintenance, renovation and deconstruction.
Green buildings are designed to reduce their overall impact on human health and the environment by:
- Efficiently using energy, water, and resources
- Protecting occupant health and improving employee productivity
- Reducing waste, pollution and environmental degradation
