What is Green Building?
The process of green building incorporates environmental considerations into every phase of the home building process. That means that the design, construction, and operation of a home, energy and water efficiency, lot development, resource efficient building design and materials, indoor environmental quality, homeowner maintenance, and the home’s overall impact on the environment are all taken into account.
The Southwest Green Build Council encourages the voluntary development and construction of Green Certified Projects through education, communication, and advocacy of responsible green building practices.
The Southwest Green Build Council shall be an advocate in the community for promoting a heightened sense of responsibility in sustainable practices, striving to bring people together in this common purpose to improve the buildings that we live and work in for a better tomorrow.
