Green buildings around the world ‎

Why Green Building?
A Green building focuses on increasing the efficiency of resource use such as energy, water, and materials while reducing building impact on human health and the environment during the building's lifecycle. This is achieved through better sitting, design, construction, operation, maintenance, and removal. Green Buildings should be designed and operated to reduce the overall impact of the built environment on its surroundings.

Regulation and operation
Many countries have developed their own standards for green building or energy efficiency for buildings. Some of the major building environmental assessment tools currently in use include:
- Australia: Nabers / Green Star
- Brazil: AQUA / LEED Brasil
- Canada: LEED Canada / Green Globes

- Finland: PromisE
- France: HQE
- Germany: DGNB / CEPHEUS

Vulcano Buono Building, Napels, Italy
Huge Green Volcano Construction Built Near Mt. Vesuvius
The design of the construction was inspired by the surrounding scenery. The vegetative layer of the building's roof has more than 2,500 plants that cover the interior and make Vulcano Buono almost invisible from space. It is also worth mentioning that the construction's roof is connected with a series of skylights that feature solar-control double pane glass. The latter makes it possible for daylight to pass through the mall, cutting the amount energy spent for illumination. Inside the building, visitors can visit various shops, a supermarket, a number of restaurants, a hotel and even a 2,000 seat cinema.
