What is a green building? Why do we need green buildings? How many do we have in South Africa? What is in it for me?
“A green building is a building which is energy efficient, resource efficient and environmentally responsible” as quoted from the Green Building Council of South Africa. This means that architectural design of an office block; particular types of building materials and technology are used to reduce energy and resource consumption and lower the environmental impact that humans and cities are having on the universe. That is why we need them!
