NAHB to Launch Green Building Program

Share this on:

Well 2008 seems like it will be a pivotal year for pushing green building full steam ahead. The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), which currently promotes model green home building guidelines, will launch a national standard, the National Green Building Program.

According to the NAHB, “it will include an interactive, web-based certification system, as well as other tools and resources for builders and certifiers, and a national registry of green builders and green homes. With the advent of this affordable certification program, homeowners who renovate or purchase a new home will be assured that their home is built to a national green standard.  They will enjoy lower energy and water bills, healthier indoor air, and the knowledge that they can live a little lighter on the earth.
