Green builders build commercial and residential structures that have less impact on the environment and on human health than typical constructions. The buildings they help create use energy, water, and other resources efficiently and reduce waste, pollution, and environmental degradation. Depending on their job role, green builders plan, direct, coordinate, and/or budget construction and maintenance projects.
