The study evaluated the application of eco-friendly systems in some selected buildings in Nigeria with a aim of taking advantage of natural resources for building efficiency. Qualitative and Quantitative research methods were employed in this study. Data was obtained by the administration of questionnaires to occupants of residential buildings and the designs of their building were also assessed against sustainable standards. Findings showed that the buildings of sampled respondents were not sustainable and the natural resources available in the environment were not properly utilized. In addition, the residents pay more for energy consumption because the natural resources in the environment were not adequately integrated in the building. The study therefore recommended that a green building rating system like the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) suitable for Nigeria should be designed to guide new projects and renovations
