Now featuring a comprehensive vocabulary list, this updated new module brings together the expertise of industry and higher education in defining a topic of growing international importance: green building. Geared to entry-level craft workers or to anyone wishing to learn more about green building, this module provides fundamental instruction in the green environment, green construction practices, and green building rating systems.
Presented in easy-to-understand terms and illustrations, Your Role in the Green Environment will better equip learners to make decisions regarding their personal impacts on the environment and will make them more aware of how to lessen their impacts in the built environment.
