What is Built Green?

Building green is about caring for the new home's occupants, now and in the future. It's about looking ahead, reducing the impact on the environment, and making changes that benefit not only the home owner, but local and global communities for generations to come.

Built Green is an industry driven voluntary program that encourages home builders to use technologies, products and practices that will:

  • Provide greater efficiency and reduce pollution
  • Provide healthier indoor air quality
  • Reduce water usage
  • Preserve natural resources
  • Improve durability and reduce maintenance

Built Green™ homes enjoy lower utility costs and higher home values. They offer better indoor air quality, and require a lower level of maintenance. Built Green™ homes provide many long-term economic returns for their owners, while reducing their impact on the environment.
