Green building creates green jobs that save energy and money. In fact, as economic experts call for a recovery plan focused on green jobs and infrastructure, as consumers look to live in more economically sustainable homes, as businesses strive to cut operating costs, and as our national security needs depend on an end to reliance on foreign energy sources, green buildings' ability to deliver solutions to these pressing challenges promises to change the way we view the building industry.The future of the built environment centres on energy efficiency, water reduction, systems that encourage cleaner indoor air, the use of recycled and more sustainable developed materials, and communities that coexist with their environments.
