What is green? Green is different things to different people.
Green is not a stagnant definition, but an integration of concepts, policies, practices…a philosophy of interconnected ideas and choices…resulting in reduced environmental impact.
Green building techniques have been used for centuries. The modern green building movement began in the 1970’s as a result of both the oil price increases and the rise of the environmental movement. This course will help provide a basic understanding of “green” attributes and lifestyles. It will establish a baseline of information and investigation, create common terminology and resources for “green” building while exploring associated tax incentives.
