Green Building

"Value of"

“Green Building is the practice of creating structures and using processes that are environmentally responsible and resource-efficient throughout a building’s life-cycle from siting to design, construction, operation, maintenance, renovation and deconstruction.” (US Environmental Protection Agency, http://archive.epa.gov/greenbuilding/web/html/#1 )

One of the most important aspects of green building is that it is not an “all or nothing” endeavor. When carefully implemented even modest measures can result in significant conservation of resources.
