2022 NGBS Green Partners of Excellence

Join us in celebrating our 2022 NGBS Green Partners of Excellence for their sustained excellence and unwavering commitment to high-performance, green homes!

We celebrate these awardees for their commitment to more sustainable and healthier homes using the NGBS. Our Partners have not only committed to sustainable design, but they have also verified their commitment with the NGBS Green certification.

Our Partners of Excellence (POE) have grown throughout our 15 years of offering NGBS Green certifications. We celebrate the diversity of housing designed, built, and verified by our POE winners. Our partners are building every type of housing imaginable: single-family homes to high-rise apartments; affordable LIHTC projects to luxury homes; student housing to assisted living facilities; and everything in-between. Our partners have pushed the envelope of what is possible, with zero energy and net zero water use; resilient construction in hurricane-prone areas, and homes crafted to promote resident wellness. Each home certified is a step toward a more sustainable future.

Our LEGACY Partners have been with the program for more than five years - some from the program's inception in 2008!

Congratulations to Our Awardees!
