Conventional buildings, and the construction process that creates them have a substantial impact on the health and wellbeing of people and the planet. They’re costly to maintain and operate, generate waste that can have a significant impact on local environments and nature, and use global resources to construct and operate. In fact, it has been estimated that the daily operation of buildings accounts for 40% of total energy usage worldwide. Now, enter the world of green building.

Commercial green building is on the rise--and keeps growing Green building is the practice of designing, constructing and operating buildings to maximize occupant health and productivity, use fewer resources, reduce waste and negative environmental impacts, and decrease life cycle costs.

How big is the movement? It’s big. Building owners expect to build more than 60 percent of their projects as green buildings by 2021. Decreased operating costs, short payback periods and asset value increases were strong drivers of green building, but creating healthier indoor environments was also a major motivator.

In addition, a rating system such as LEED allows builders to create a better-performing building. LEED, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is the most widely used green building rating system in the world. It’s a system that’s now broadening its focus on construction to include maintenance and the long-term sustainment of energy efficiency.
