CLEAN EARTH - Star Quality

A green building is a high-performance building. 

Inspired by the efficiency of nature, it makes the most of passive (low-energy) technology to create a pleasant interior environment while reducing its impact on the wider environment. As well as reaping lower costs from energy efficiency, water conservation, and waste minimization, companies also cite significant productivity benefits from healthier, happier staff.

Occupant well being is just as important to rating a green building as calculating its carbon emissions.
