Introduction to the Green Building Label
What is green building?

  The definition and contents of the term “green building” may vary from country to country. For example, the term “Environmental Symbiotic Housing” was first used in Japan representing the protection of the earth environment, the harmony of surrounding environment, and the amenity of living environment. In Europe, “Ecological Buildings” and “Sustainable Buildings” are widely adopted, mainly focusing on eco-balance, protection, diversity, resource recycle and reuse, renewable energy and energy saving. In North America, the US and Canada are using the “Green Building” emphasizing on energy efficiency enhancement, energy saving, adequate use of resources and materials, indoor environmental quality, and affordable environmental load. Therefore, although various environmental conditions of each country may differentiate the exact content of a green building, the common concept is to reduce the environmental load generated by development projects and to pursue a symbiotic and sustainable built environment.

  Essentially, the concept of green building design is a comprehensive and systematic environmentally-friendly design for buildings based on the view of the earth environmental protection. Thus, its definition is a building that is capable of ensuring human health and comfort, and pursuing a symbiotic and sustainable living environment. The evaluation system should be capable of accommodating with different climatic conditions and socioeconomic characteristics, instead of a generic model for all.

  Therefore, nowadays there have been 26 green building evaluation systems or assessment tools developed worldwide (as Figure 1). Following the UK BREEAM, US LEED, and Canada, the EEWH green building evaluation system of Taiwan is the fourth earliest one in the world with scientific and quantitative assessment methods. This is also a unique evaluation tool developed particularly for subtropical and tropical areas.
