The idea of green building is a creative process that links the built environment with the human health and comfort, water, energy, bio-diversity and other natural resources. The endeavour is to create sustainable buildings which use less energy and water, generate less green house gases, use materials more efficiently, and produce less wastes than the conventional building over their life cycle.
