The key concept behind green buildings is sustainability. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the practice of green building is creating structures and using processes that are environmentally responsible and resource efficient through a building’s life-cycle from site selection to design, construction, operation, maintenance, renovation, and deconstruction. Green building is also known as sustainable or high performance building.

Environmental benefits of green building include reduced water waste and conservation of other natural resources, improved air and water quality, and protection of ecosystems and biodiversity. In addition to environmental benefits, green building has economic payoffs as well. These include reduced operating costs as well as predictability when it comes to paying for utilities and amenities.
