The paper concludes a number of results, most important, that the nature and novelty of green buildings may be accompanied by unusual risks in traditional buildings which requires special insurance contract to cover such risks and to create specialized experts in green buildings to be relied upon by the court in issuing decisions as the judiciary may play a major role in developing the legal rules for green building, and finally it stresses the necessity to make the green building insurance contract obligatory.
