Green Building Assessment

GREEN BUILDING MATERIALS RATING SYSTEM – TAIWAN


The concept of Green Building Material was advocated by Architecture and Building Research Institute, Ministry of Interior, R.O.C, to quantify the measures taken within Taiwan to ensure that the materials have minimum load on the earth environment and produce no harm to the human health in the process of raw material acquirement, product manufacturing, application as well as the cycle of regeneration and reuse.
