About GHC

The Green Home Council is a non-profit organization focused on promoting sustainable and green building in the residential home building industry.  We team with other organizations to provide a comprehensive clearing house for all things green when it comes to home building and remodeling.


Our membership includes builders, material manufacturers and suppliers, real estate professionals, appraisers, lenders, and developers just to name a few.


We have partnered with the Home Builders Association to support their green building educational, outreach and home certification needs.



The Green Home Council is committed to revolutionizing housing construction and renovation by promoting and facilitating implementation of green building practices from project site planning through final certification.  The Council will work to achieve sustainable growth, reduce energy use, create healthy indoor environments, limit resource use, educate homeowners, facilitate conservation and healthy lifestyles, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
