Green Building Trends for 2022

The green building industry has come a long way in the past few years as the U.S. continues to adopt new policies to move away from fossil fuels and push for net zero carbon.

The building sector, as of 2020, accounts for 38% of all energy-related CO2 emissions globally when combining all building construction industry emissions – a statistic that our industry is actively working to reduce.

As we enter 2022, we’ve collected current building trends and practices that will continue to progress the green building materials market this year.

Continued Push for Solar/Renewable Energy

As we’ve seen in previous years, communities and businesses, both large and small, are shifting to renewable energy as a more sustainable option for power.

In the U.S., wind power, hydropower, and solar power are currently the largest renewable energy sources thus far; and expect to become more widespread in future buildings. Energy regulators in California have voted that most new buildings require solar power from the beginning of 2023.
