    According to the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA), “The basic objectives of sustainability are to reduce consumption of non-renewable resources, minimize waste, and create healthy, productive environments.” 

    Properties of sustainable design principles that they list on their website include:

    • optimize site potential;
    • minimize non-renewable energy consumption;
    • use environmentally preferable products;
    • protect and conserve water;
    • enhance indoor environmental quality; and
    • optimize operational and maintenance practices.
