The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) defines green building as the practice of maximizing the efficiency with which buildings and their sites use resources – energy, water, and materials – while minimizing building impacts on human health and the environment, throughout the complete building life cycle – from siting, design, and construction to operation, renovation, and reuse.
In practical terms, green building is a whole-systems-approach to building that includes:
- Designing for livable communities
- Using sun and light to the building’s advantage for natural heating, cooling, and day lighting
- Landscaping with native, drought-resistant plants and water-efficient practices
- Building quality, sustainable durable structures
- Reducing and recycling construction and demolition waste
- Insulating well and proper HVAC installation
- Incorporating durable, salvaged, recycled, and sustainably harvested materials
- Using healthy products and building practices
- Using energy-efficient and water-saving appliances, lighting fixtures and technologies
When implemented holistically, these strategies serve to preserve our environment for future generations by conserving natural resources and protecting air and water quality. They provide benefits for us today by increasing comfort and well-being and helping to maintain healthy air quality. Finally, green building strategies are good for everyone’s pocketbook by reducing maintenance and replacement requirements, reducing utility bills and lowering the cost of home ownership, and increasing property and resale values.
