Benefits of Building Green

About 50% of the world’s energy consumption and CO₂ emissions come from buildings and construction. Green building helps reduce these impacts and benefit everyone 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.

See the impact of green building locally on the City of Austin Open Data webpage.
