Environments for Living

A green home can do more than help the environment. It can increase your home’s comfort and durability. It can help save you money through energy-saving features that can add up over time. And it can even provide you with potentially greater resale value.

The Environments For Living® program provides a rigorous set of requirements for home builders who’ve made a commitment to go the extra mile. It’s a program that treats a home as a “system of systems” that work together, with limited guarantees* on comfort and heating/cooling energy use. And the Environments For Living Certified Green program adds even more benefits in areas like indoor environmental quality and indoor water conservation.
