2017 Green Practices Survey

The 2017 Green Practices Survey was conducted to gather information on sustainable and high performance building practices being used in single-family home building in 2016. Survey questions were created to capture which green construction methods and strategies were incorporated as standard practice in a typical home built that year. Responses were aligned with practices found in the 2012 and 2015 National Green Building Standard (NGBS) to determine how green the typical single-family home is regardless of if they obtain certification under the standard.
