Green buildings are specifically designed structures that reduce the overall negative
impact of the built environment on human health and the natural environment by:

Efficiently using energy, water, land, and materials
Protecting occupant health and improving employee productivity
Reducing waste and pollution from each green building
Continuously looking for ways to improve performance

High-performance green buildings address sustainable development throughout the
building’s entire life cycle – from the beginning with the building’s site selection and
design all the way through to the end of the building’s life.

Sustainable buildings are significantly better than standard buildings. They use less
energy, save money over time, provide better occupant health and comfort, and are better
for the environment.

To achieve the many benefits of green building, whole building design was developed.
