GreenPoint Rated 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.
GreenPoint Rated features independent verification of the home's green building features and benefits, coupled with outstanding consumer education tied to the program brand and logo. At the heart of the program are Certified GreenPoint Raters--the people who evaluate each home to ensure it meets the program's standards for high performance.
The GreenPoint Rated program provides an objective, third-party verification system that equips consumers to find green homes, understand green benefits, and recognize green features. Trained and certified raters evaluate whether new and existing homes meet program standards. Conservation of natural resources, increased energy efficiency and improved indoor air quality are just a few of the benchmarks a new home must reach to qualify.
