Select NGBS Green Certified products. Simplify your path to certification.

Work Smarter, Not Harder

December 8, 2017

Why work harder to find products that meet your NGBS certification needs, when you can work smarter by specifying NGBS Green Certified Products?

What is the Green Certified Product program?

Understanding the inherent challenges to creating a high-performance home, not to mention achieving rigorous third-party certification for that home, Home Innovation Research Labs wanted a way to help builders simplify some of the process. Our NGBS Green Certified Product program bridges the gap between manufacturers who produce NGBS-compliant products, and the builders/designers who want to use them.

NGBS Green Certified

To have a product or material NGBS Green Certified Products, manufacturers must provide Home Innovation with appropriate third-party evidence as proof their products meet the criteria of the National Green Building Standard (NGBS) for buildings seeking NGBS Green Certification. NGBS Green Certified Products earn a certificate that identifies the specific NGBS section(s) where points for the product are available. This information facilitates designers' selection of products to be used in green homes, and the approval of those points by Home Innovation-accredited NGBS Green Verifiers.

NGBS Green Certified product information can be found at www.HomeInnovation.com/GreenProducts. The site was specifically designed for the architects, builders, and remodelers seeking NGBS Green Certification of their projects, but could be equally beneficial for consumers or anyone who’s interested in making their home more comfortable, durable, and efficient – in short, more green.

We LIST the product. You PICK the product.
Your verifier CHECKS the product. It’s that simple!
