Today, USGBC celebrates the recipients of its 2017 LEED Homes Awards, an annual honor given to innovative projects, architects, developers and homebuilders leading the residential green building market.

“We believe that all buildings, especially homes, should be green. LEED-certified homes enhance the health and well-being of occupants by providing clean indoor air and incorporating safe building materials to ensure comfort and safety, and they are designed to save critical resources, use less energy and water and save money,” said Mahesh Ramanujam, President and CEO of USGBC and GBCI. “The LEED Homes Awards showcase the most inspired and efficient practices in the residential green building movement. These leaders show what it means to create a home that balances aesthetic appeal with real human and environmental needs.”

As the demand for sustainable homes increases with the growing population of an environmentally conscious millennial market, USGBC is advancing its LEED for Homes certification through the most recent installment of LEED v4.1. Later this year, USGBC will release this most current certification for the residential sector in beta.
