Green building, also known as sustainable or high performance 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. This practice expands and complements the classical building design concerns of economy, utility, durability, and comfort.

Green buildings are designed to reduce the overall impact of the built environment on human health and the natural environment by:

Managing energy, transportation, waste, and water – the Federal Green Challenge target areas – are also green building goals. Green building takes an integrated, wholebuilding approach and can be implemented in new construction and major renovation projects as well as in existing building operation and maintenance. There are opportunities to green your building at leased facilities, too. In this webinar, you’ll get an overview of green building along with information and examples of green building opportunities in new and existing buildings and leased facilities.
