Green Building is the practice of creating healthier, more resource-efficient models of construction, renovation, operation, maintenance, and demolition.
Buildings and development have extensive effects on human health, natural resource use, and environmental quality. Buildings may also produce widespread air and water pollution, stormwater runoff, waste, and unhealthy indoor environments. Green building aims to reduce those impacts and transform buildings into a sustainable part of the landscape.
Some of the fastest growing areas in the country are located in Region 9 and the states, tribes, local governments, businesses, researchers, architects and builders have been pioneers developing effective green building initiatives. EPA Region 9 supports initiatives to advance green building regionally and nationally. We have a number of green building initiatives and work with a wide range of partners.
