I think that the creating of a building goes through many steps like design, construction, operation, maintenance, renovation, and demolition.

A 'GREEN building' is one that has gone through all these processes to become resource-efficient and therefore environmentally responsible. 

For instance, the best example of a Green Building is - 

Hawa Mahal - Articulated windows provides cool breeze in a desert area
Golkonda - Ventilation is designed to let in fresh cool breeze, in spite of summers
