- IntroductionDescriptionEmerging IssuesRelevant Codes and StandardsBuildings have extensive direct and indirect impacts on the environment. During their construction, occupancy, renovation, repurposing, and demolition, buildings use energy, water, and raw materials, generate waste, and emit potentially harmful atmospheric emissions. These facts have prompted the creation of green building standards, certifications, and rating systems aimed at mitigating the impact of buildings on the natural environment through sustainable design.The push toward sustainableSecure, Clean and Efficient Energy Horizon 2020
