What is the next step in ‘green building’?
Net positive building is the next step in creating a greener future. The field of construction has been moving towards Net Zero Carbon buildings. A Net Zero Carbon building is a building that through the course building’s life-cycle greenhouse gas emissions from all sources sum up to zero or less.
“The next step is to build a net-positive or energy-positive building that produces more energy than it consumes and that can generate enough energy through its whole life to make up for the energy used to construct it. A good explanation of why net-positive buildings are the next frontier of green building is in this TED video:”

The construction industry as a whole has an enormous effect on climate change and we all have a responsibility to consider the impact on future generations.
