Green Building

Green Building, also known as sustainable or eco-friendly building, involves designing, constructing, and operating buildings in ways that reduce or eliminate negative impacts on the environment and human health. This includes using energy-efficient systems, sustainable materials, and water conservation practices. Green buildings aim to reduce waste, pollution, and environmental degradation while promoting occupant health and well-being.

The principles of green building can be applied to residential, commercial, and industrial structures. Certification systems like LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) provide frameworks and standards for assessing and recognizing green buildings. Investing in green building practices can lead to long-term cost savings, enhanced property value, and a reduced carbon footprint.
