Today, in anticipation of conveying its 100,000th NGBS Green home certification, Home Innovation Research Labs recently recognized 100 NGBS Green Partners for outstanding contributions to advancing green building in their communities and commitment to voluntary, market-driven, third-party certification of high-performance homes. The 2016-2017 Home Innovation NGBS Green Partners of Excellence include 54 residential building and development companies; 18 accredited verifiers; 16 architectural firms; and 12 exemplary program advocates from across the country. New to the mix this year are two lending companies among the advocates.

Others around the industry could certainly benefit from following the lead of these outstanding NGBS Green Partners and building on their success.”
