ABSTRACT
Energy consumption and the green house gas emissions that result from that consumption are increasingly visible environmental issues within the United States. The building industry contributes both directly and indirectly to energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. Energy consumption and greenhouse gas emission is inherent during the building process, as well as during the building’s lifecycle. As such, the building industry increases both the nation’s dependence on foreign energy sources and its greenhouse gas emissions. To curb energy use and emissions in the building industry, certain standards for energy and water usage efficiency have been created.
