To-day. Green, or sustainable, or environmentally-friendly architecture is not simply an environmental benefit. It is place-sensitive; in a globalizing world it leads to location-specific architecture by responding to local climatic conditions and using local materials.A growing awareness of the critical need to address climate change and resource scarcities. The particular link between the extraction, production, and consumption of energy and the carbon content of the atmosphere have led to dire predictions of massive societal upheaval and escalating resource conflicts. As a result, very many initiatives, constructive and opportunistic, are addressing many aspects of the challenge of designing and operating buildings in ways that lessen our burden on the global environment.
