What is green building?

Design and construction practices that meet specified standards, resolving much of the negative impact of buildings on their occupants and on the environment.

  • Indoor Environmental Quality
  • Energy
  • Site Planning
  • Water Management
  • Material Use

Benefits of Green Building
Green building has multiple direct environmental and economic benefits to homeowners and to society as a whole. Some of these benefits include:

  • Increasing demand for recycled content building products creates markets for the materials collected in municipal recycling programs.
  • Reducing and recycling construction wastes has a beneficial impact on the environment, the homeowner, the local municipality, and those who might benefit from materials donations.
  • Recycling construction waste is often less expensive than disposal.
  • Massachusetts residents can realize monthly utility savings by making their homes more energy efficient.
  • The use of onsite electricity generation, via photo-voltaic cells or other methods, saves you money, reduces air- pollution, and reduces the state’s dependence on out-of-state power generation.
  • Using low-flow water fixtures and reducing the amount of landscape can reduce water demand, and save money for homeowners who live in areas with water meters.
  • Cities that embrace green building can reduce the impacts on their infrastructure, including roads, water treatment, and storm water run-off.
  • Reducing water consumption also saves electricity used to pump water to consumers.
