Green Practices Survey

Sustainability and Green Building
2017 Green Practices Survey Poster

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.
