Green building

Also known as sustainable building or environmental building, green building is the practice of increasing the efficiency with which buildings and their sites use and harvest energy, water, and materials, and reducing the impacts of buildings on human health and the environment, through better site planning, design, construction, operation, maintenance, and removal—the complete building life cycle.
