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.
