Green Principles for Residential Design

Excerpted from the Beyond Green™ Guidelines for High-Performance Homes

“It is not sufficient to create a home that is simply green. Beyond Green™, the tagline adopted by the Sustainable Buildings Industry Council in 2006, helps convey the commitment to designing and building high-performance homes. To go Beyond Green™, homebuilders should apply an intentional integrated approach to design and a strong integrated team process.”
