GBC Unit 1 - Introduction to Green Building

Students are introduced to the key principles of green building, including current standards and considerations for regional factors. They are also introduced to the five components of green building that include energy, water, sustainable sites, materials and resources, and indoor environmental quality. The hands-on audit provides students with an opportunity to gather basic information about their school building and grounds to prepare them to do more in-depth audits related to energy, water, and more.
