The "NAHB Model Green Home Building Guidelines" are available through a free online download to industry professionals interested in developing green building programs.
The voluntary guidelines are designed to move environmentally-friendly home building concepts further into the mainstream marketplace. The guidelines help facilitate the adoption of green home building practices and the formation of additional local programs in the parts of the country not currently served by these programs. The NAHB Research Center worked together in an open, public process with over 60 Stakeholder Group members from the home building industry to create those guidelines.
The ANSI National Standard is being adopted by NAHB and some local programs. It's the newest consensus-based verification program and includes more steps than the NAHB Green Building Guidelines.
