What are the benefits of a sustainable building?

The environmental benefits of sustainable construction include improved air and water quality, enhancing and protecting biodiversity and the ecosystem. These eco-friendly buildings conserve and restore natural resources, by providing less green house gas emissions and reducing our carbon footprint.

Sustainable buildings have increased economic benefits including reduced operating costs, improved occupant productivity, enhanced asset value and increased profits.

Further to the environmental and economic benefits, the social benefits of sustainable building include enhanced occupant health and comfort, improved indoor air quality as well as minimising the strain on local utility infrastructure.
