The National Green Building Standard: Green Certification Game Changer

Until recently, residential buildings lagged in the green certification market because margins for residential are small, compared to commercial construction, and the returns are not sufficient to support certain green practices. But ANSI approval of the National Green Building Standard (NGBS) in 2009 opened the door to cost-effective, credible, marketable green certification for homes and apartments, and this trend is on the rise. In fact, McGraw Hill reports the green home market is poised to double from what it was in 2013—going from $37 billion (27% of market) to $90 billion (up to 33% of market) by 2016. Don’t miss your chance to capitalize on this growing market through the NGBS, which is now the preferred green certification for the residential industry. Learn from Michelle Desiderio, Home Innovation Research Labs' Vice President of Innovation Services, about the NGBS Green Certification Program, its successes, and emerging green building trends with the development of the 2015 NGBS.
