About Green Building Certifications

Multiple organizations award Green Building Certifications. Depending on the certification, properties may be newly constructed or retrofitted to meet the criteria. In a green certified building, renters may have lower monthly energy and water costs, and live in an apartment that is more comfortable in the heat of summers and the cold of winters. Owners may see a reduction in their energy and water costs, higher occupancy rates and increased property sales prices.
