Greener building practices help to lower local GHG emission totals, thereby benefiting the community and environmental health and also protecting the occupants of the buildings.

Other Benefits
  • The building sector has the largest potential for significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions compared to other major emitting sectors – UNEP, 2009.
  • This emissions savings potential is said to be as much as 84 gigatonnes of CO2 (GtCO2) by 2050, through direct measures in buildings such as energy efficiency, fuel switching and the use of renewable energy – UNEP, 2016.

The greatest threat to our planet is  the belief that someone else will save it.
