What Is Green Building?

Green building is the design, construction, operation, and demolition of buildings in a way that reduces environmental impact, improves the health and well-being of occupants, and increases financial performance. A well-designed building should create a healthy, productive environment for its occupants, while lessening the demand for energy and resources. The City has an array of services and programs that can help building owners, facility managers, tenants, and others build green and improve their buildings.

To make it easier to find the resources you need, this site is divided by sector into single-family, multi-family, and commercial, and then by builder/owner or renter/tenant.
