The concept of green architecture, also known as "sustainable development" or "green building," is the theory, science, and style of buildings designed and built based on environmentally friendly principles. Green architecture seeks to minimize the number of resources used in the construction, operation, and management of the building and limit the damage caused to the environment by spreading, pollution, and waste of building components. New water and materials are used to design, build, operate and conserve building energy and generate large amounts of waste that negatively affect health and the environment. To limit these effects and design environmentally sound and resource-efficient buildings, the concept of "green building systems" needs to be introduced, clarified and understood, and practiced. One of the solutions is to use green building methods in the construction industry in today's world. Demand for sustainability as a definitive solution to all environmental challenges Inspired by this research to emphasize the priority of increasing sustainable environmental productivity to reduce carbon emissions to discuss and demonstrate sustainable buildings in Iran (new and existing) and Presenting the principles of energy audit used in them and their performance toward standards. Meanwhile, Iran is ranked as one of the good countries in building growth and green energy in the Middle East and other countries, according to the US Green Building Council's ranking of energy consumption, renewable energy, and recycled materials in 2015-2016.
