Increased global urbanization has caused energy become crucial to human well-being and to a country's socio-economical in particular to health-environmental development.Buildings arc estimated consumed about 40% of world's energy and at the same time produced about 40% of world's waste. Today, around the world, the desire to build sustainable buildings with sustainable construction materials is a worldwide phenomenon.Lighting considerations are an important part and the use of Light Emitting Diodes (LED) luminaires can contributes to sustainable use of energy.Sustainable lighting design is more than achieving watts per metre square target.It should consider the entire lighting system, from the materials used to the installation of materials and the on-going maintenance.The evolution emerging of new technologies and innovations that are driven by sustainable design, it is critical to understand the importance of luminaire design to LED performance compared with traditional lighting technologies. LEDs are smaller and have a longer operating life and lower total cost of ownership than traditional lighting technologies. This paper outlines sustainable and best practice guidelines for LED selection applicable to a variety of projects.The analytical phase of this paper presents series of examples and scenario showing how the LED technologies can contribute to reduce environmental effects, achieve significant energy savings and sustainability.Sustainable lighting should goes beyond achieving target energy efficiency and also should extend not only to the luminaire election process but the entire lighting design process.The luminaire selection can be a critical component of the building design that contributes sustainable innovation.
