What is sustainable building and why is it important?

A sustainable building is a structure that uses minimal natural resources to both construct and operate.

Sustainable buildings help to reduce wastage of natural resources and carbon emissions over the life cycle of the building by increasing the efficiency with which sites use energy, water and materials.

Ultimately, a sustainable building provides a healthier environment for occupancy comfort and wellbeing, whilst running at maximum cost efficiency and reducing the impact on the environment.
