This paper is an attempt to put each term (green, sustainable and healthy building) within the scientifically and historically correct framework and eliminate the confusion by clarifying points of similarities and differences between them. New concepts and methods have emerged in designing and constructing buildings, such as green, sustainable, and healthy buildings. These concepts are ideas that we hear all of the time, however, they are rarely properly understood, especially the words “green” and “sustainable” are often used interchangeably, but being "green" and being "sustainable". The absence of a comprehensive theoretical framework that can define the similarities and differences between these concepts formed the main problem of the study. analytical and comparison methods employed in this study by collecting data from many related sources and analyzing it to get the final results. The results showed that there is a big difference between the three concepts.
