Key Points:

Green is not a stagnant definition. Rather, 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 1970s as a result of both oil price increases and the rise of the environmental movement.
