What is Green?
Green Built NC
Green homes incorporate environmental considerations and resource
efficiency into every step of the building and development process to
minimize environmental impact. The design, construction, and operation
of a home must focus on energy and water efficiency, resource efficient
building design and materials, indoor environmental quality, and must
take the home's overall impact on the environment into account.
