Green building is more than just a development trend. It involves a range of environmental aspects such as emissions reduction, water conservation, storm water management, temperature moderation, and waste reduction. Greenbuild 2014, the world’s largest conference and expo dedicated to green building, which began in New Orleans, highlights these aspects and showcases the latest technologies and innovations in sustainable building.
