Green Building
   

SHWEC's programs in green building and sustainable development began in 1997 as a natural outgrowth of work in reduction, reuse and recycling of construction and demolition materials; environmentally preferable purchasing; and environmental practices that promote community economic development and health. Green building is a whole building integrated design and construction approach that optimizes the site and energy, water and materials efficiency and improves indoor environmental quality and occupant comfort. Green building advances the triple bottom line of community, environment and economy by enhancing human health and productivity, protecting or enhancing the natural environment and providing economic advantage through lower life cycle costs and economic development.
