By promoting the building of a green building across the world is an essential step in saving the Earth and promoting a healthier and environmental friendly environment for us to live in. Other than that, green buildings are able to receive LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) certified office which is an international certification system that is developed by the US Green Building Council. Only green buildings that have met the strict criteria such as the design, environmental features and construction of the building operations and more set by the USGBC are able to obtain the certification.
Other than that, a green building is able to reduce the harmful impacts on the environment such as pollution and build a better environmental friendly workplace environment for the users. In addition, the innovative technologies in the green building will help to reduce the amount of daily water and energy consumption which will reduce the operating costs in a long run.
Eco-Friendly Innovative Technology Solutions
There are different innovative technology solutions that is able to help to reduce the amount of energy consumption in a building in the long run. Firstly, advanced lighting system such as occupancy sensors where it will be automatically switched off when there is no people and also the use of natural day light to reduce the use of lights.
Secondly, by keeping track of the carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions for indoor and outdoor, we are able to ensure that the building is not emitting too much harmful substances to the environment and ensure that the progress of the green building.
Thirdly, by having an effective hear recovery system, we are able to reduce the amount of energy intake.
Fourthly, with plantation of different plants and different operations system that requires water, you are able to store rain water and use it in an efficiency irrigation system that could supply those water to the plants and the operations system that are in the buildings. This can significantly reduce the amount of fresh water that is used for the irrigation of the plants and operations system.
Lastly, having an environmental design in the building that promotes the ventilation of the building can efficiently reduce the amount of fan ventilation or air-conditioning system that cools down the building. This can significantly reduce the amount of power consumption from appliances such as air-conditioner and fans ventilation.
An environmental sustainable building which also known as green building helps to efficiently use of energy. The green buildings have many environmental features that promotes the use of energy, light, water and heat efficiently. Some even have innovative technologies that are able to generate renewable energy such as solar power. Sustainable building is able to significantly reduce the amount of water, energy and wastes that a building utilises.
Most of the buildings that are constructed actually uses materials that are not environmentally friendly. This is because several materials that they used in the construction requires different processes that requires additional energy to build which increase the level of pollution to the Earth.
