Answer – when it is done just for green’s sake.
Nothing is sustainable if it cannot be managed financially and if it doesn’t support the end users while it respects resources and the planet. An ugly, poorly laid out green building will only be torn down in a few years, and frustrate all who use it. Yes, use local materials, but only if they work and if you can afford them!
Seek to be greener by being creative in regard to balancing the budget, the benefit to the building occupants and staff, and the planet we call home.
