The term eco friendly building can apply to a number of factors. Usually it refers to buildings that do as little damage to the environment as possible. Several factors go into this. Using a quality insulation system, to reduce energy use. Having alternative power sources, like solar or wind.
As far as how to actually build one. Assuming you are not going to build it yourself, you need to hire a contractor that will follow eco building principles. It helps to learn as much as possible before you hire a contractor so you know if they are going to do a good job, or if they are just spewing BS to get work.
