    Many countries have implemented policies to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in public buildings, emphasizing the leading role of the public sector. In Korea, in order to achieve a 30% reduction in GHG emissions by 2030, public agencies must set annual targets or quotas. However, the lack of experts and support are the biggest obstacles to achieving this reduction target. This study constructed a GHG evaluation database (DB) based on energy use, GHG reduction technology with the aim of decision making about GHG reduction with minimal building information and limited expert knowledge. The GHG evaluation DB was built using data from the Commercial Building Energy Consumption Survey (CBECS), an energy consumption survey of 6,720 public and commercial buildings by the US Department of Energy. The database was used in addition, it proposed a method for evaluating greenhouse gases in public buildings by using basic information such as the total floor area of ​​buildings through building energy data. Additionally, the case study of domestic public buildings, A case study was conducted to examine the significance of the evaluation DB. - COLLAPSE

    The construction of sustainable schools has received increasing attention, and the realization of sustainable school development can not only fundamentally alleviate the environmental impact of building energy, but also reduce and eventually eliminate the negative effects of buildings on human health and the environment. In addition, it is also very important to implement sustainable strategies for school facilities that can influence students’ learning and health as well. This study conducted an in-depth case study method to figure out the appropriate sustainable strategies and energy saving technologies that could be a prototype model for a sustainable school facility. In addition, this energy and sustainable prototype can reduce energy consumption in the school facility as well as improve indoor environment. The construction of sustainable schools has a long-term positive effect and significance to the economy, environment and society. - COLLAPSE
