NGBS Green Certification for Neighborhoods and Communities

NGBS Green Land Development Certification

The National Green Building Standard® (NGBS) provides practices for the design, planning, construction, and certification of land development, including:

  • Residential communities
  • Mixed-use communities

The NGBS offers four levels of green certification for site design and land development: One through Four Stars, depending on the number of green practices successfully incorporated. To be certified, a project must implement a minimum number of green development practices.

Regardless of size or location, all communities are eligible to be certified under the NGBS as long as some of the parcels will eventually be developed with residential buildings. Certification of the land development is completely independent of the certification of the buildings ultimately constructed within the development, although certification of the land development may help residential buildings obtain points toward certification.
