In the United States, the building environment accounts for approximately one-third of all energy, water and materials consumption and generates similar proportions of pollution. As affordable technologies and materials continue to be introduced to the marketplace, we are changing the type of materials we use to construct these buildings.
Governmental regulations, environmental design concerns and skyrocketing energy costs are driving the movement toward eco-friendly building materials and design. Alternative methods are being developed for the planning, construction and use of buildings and communities.
In this "Our Planet" series, we'll explore the strategies used in sustainable architecture that help to minimize the building impacts on our environment. From incorporating building materials created from recycled products, to utilizing design elements that foster energy efficiency and water usage, we'll discover how green-buildings promote a healthier indoor atmosphere and make us better stewards of the environment. We'll speak with industry experts to reveal the connections in sustainable building materials and conservation design strategies. Viewers will learn how sustainable practices can benefit building owners and users, the local community and of course, the global environment.
"Our Planet" identifies and promotes products and services that conserve resources and habitats, minimize ozone depletion and global warming, and promote less waste and toxic pollution. Highlighting those who are championing conservation efforts, "Our Planet" provides viewers with the latest news, research, and expert advice on new products and technologies that are changing the energy industry as well as the global landscape.
