Green building it is a building project that would allow you to preserve most of the natural environment around the project site, while still being able to produce a building that is going to serve a purpose. The construction and operation will promote a healthy environment for all involved, and it will not disrupt the land, water, resources and energy in and around the building. This is the actual definition of a green building.

The concept of green buildings is the measure of our efforts in attaining that idealistic sustainable construction practices. According to Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in the US, Green Building is the “practice of creating structures and using processes that are environmentally responsible and resource-efficient throughout a building life-cycle from siting to design, construction, operation, maintenance, renovation, and deconstruction.” This definition has evolved over the years. “Green Buildings” is an ever evolving, dynamic term. Green Building is the status of our efforts in attaining sustainability in construction practices. As technology evolves and new materials are developed, the status of our efforts is also changing. Hence, the essence of green buildings is changing. The aim of this paper is to discuss sustainability with respect to green buildings, its importance in one of the world’s leading Green Building program – Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification from the perspective of sustainable material selection, and governing policies in LEED. Furthermore, the role of life cycle assessment (LCA) in assessing the sustainability claims of green buildings and building materials is introduced.

Professor’s Review (please keep into consideration)

“Great topic! It would be really novel if you can select a few criteria from LEED-Green buildings and LCA and merge them in one scorecard. Then you can select a few case studies and compare them using your scorecard. This will take your project beyond what is already known and will help you build a really interesting website where people can find something to help them evaluate their projects. Use in-text citations >> (Bernstein and Bowerbank 2008).”
