33,000 homes are Built Green

March 22, 2018



Built Green has hit a milestone with more than 30,000 detached houses and 3,380 multi-family units now built under the Built Green banner.
With this completion, the cumulative impact of these single-family certified homes translates into more than half-a-million tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions saved,, according to the organization.
Built Green’s programs focus on sustainable residential construction and include Natural Resources Canada’s EnerGuide Rating System, the preservation of natural resources, pollution reduction and improved air quality. The program started 15 years ago and CEO Jennifer Christenson praised the “early adopters” in the home building industry that participated and kept the program rolling.
“To us, they’re mavericks: those who are forward-thinking and ahead of market demand, ahead of regulation, driving innovation and an industry forward,” she said.
