By Rajendar Bairi

Green building (which is also popularly known as green construction or sustainable building) is the practicing of creating structures and using processes that are environmentally responsible and resource-efficient throughout a building's life-cycle. It includes 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.

always new technologies are constantly being developed all over the world to complement current practices in creating greener structures, the common goal is that green buildings are designed to reduce the overall impact of the built environment on human health and the nature. It is as follows:

a) Efficiently using energy, water, and other resources available

b) Protecting occupant health and improving employee productivity always

c) Reducing waste, pollution and environmental degradation as more as possible

Also similar concept is natural building. It is usually on a smaller scale and tends to focus on the use of natural materials that are available locally. Other related issues include sustainable design and green architecture.
