Benefits of Building Green

Green Building is the art and science of designing and constructing buildings to reduce their effect on human health and the natural environment. About 50% of the world’s energy consumption and CO2 emissions come from buildings and construction. We can reduce these impacts through "green building."

Green buildings benefit us all by:

  • Saving energy, water, and other resources.
  • Improving building health, comfort, and value.
  • Reducing waste, pollution, and environmental degradation.
  • Reducing greenhouse gases that cause climate change.
