1: be careful with excess heat – use it for the building rather than pollution
2: basically re-use as much as possible so that there is minimal damage to the environment
3: use solar energy to heat water and run the building
4: use materials that don’t give off fumes
I just read that some place uses the waste water from the bathroom sink to fill up the toilet tank for flushing.
Have a garden on the roof – it absorbs rain water and makes the building cooler in summer
