Q: What’s the difference between green building and high-performance housing?

A: In practical terms, not a lot. High-performance housing is perhaps a broader term than green building, but the goals of greater natural resource and energy efficiency, durability, healthy indoor air, and comfort are similar. Green building may also incorporate elements such as resource management, recycling, and improved land use, but a “high-performance” house (or builder) likely considers those factors, as well.
