COTE Forum: The GreenPoint Rated Program

COTE Forum: The GreenPoint Rated Program

Presented by Bruce Mast, of
Build it Green, the GreenPoint Rated program removes the guesswork from evaluating a home's green features, allowing home buyers to compare newly built homes on a level playing field. And GreenPoint Rated rewards building professionals who create green homes by allowing them to brand their products with a recognizable, trustworthy seal of approval.

Think of GreenPoint Rated as a report card for new home construction. A GreenPoint Rated home is graded on five categories-Energy Efficiency, Resource Conservation, Indoor Air Quality, Water Conservation and Community. If the home meets minimum point requirements in each category and scores more than 50 total points, then it earns the right to bear the GreenPoint Rated label. Because GreenPoint Rated homes are evaluated by independent, certified raters, building professionals and homeowners can feel confident that the rating has integrity and value.Please join us for this brown-bag program--and bring along your friends and co-workers!
