Green Building Materials

Purchase

Green building has become a global phenomenon, driving innovation in the products that are used and the buildings in which we live and work. What started with a handful of government buildings utilizing first-generation sustainable building products is now a worldwide movement, with commercial construction and residential building moving to the fore in sustainability. Voluntary standards and government mandates are driving growth in green building, as awareness of environmental issues has increased in developed and developing countries. The global green building materials market continues to grow, despite the global economic downturn.
