Sustainable design is a set of design principles that aim to balance the interests of the environment, finance, and social justice resulting in facilities that are green, profitable, and fair. Sustainable design considers energy efficiency, indoor environmental quality, material selection, site planning, resource efficiency, and water use with an eye to making building construction and operation safer, more productive, and less polluting, as well as less expensive to maintain.
