What is Green Building? Green building is a whole-systems approach for designing and constructing buildings that conserve energy, water, and material resources. Green buildings are healthier, safer, and more comfortable.
In practical terms, green building includes:
Using sun and wind to the building's advantage for natural heating, cooling, and daylighting
Landscaping with native plants and using water efficiently
Building quality, durable structures
Insulating well and ventilating appropriately
Incorporating salvaged, recycled, and sustainably-harvested materials
Maintaining healthy indoor air quality with appropriate building techniques and materials
Using energy efficient and water-saving appliances and fixtures
