Green building involves the use of sustainable building practices and materials. Conventional building methods use unsustainable materials and building practices that are detrimental to the environment by emitting noxious substances into the environment and contributing to global warming and unhealthy air quality. Green building minimizes harmful emissions and conserves valuable resources. Unfortunately, green building has very limited representation in the building industry. This grand challenge aims to inspire research investigating the role of building professionals, sustainable case studies, and challenges faced by green building in theory and practice.
