The Build Green New Mexico program is one of the leading residential green building programs in the country, winning a national award for its efforts in 2013. Representing a nearly 20-year evolution of green building standards and training, the program was only the third of its kind at its inception in 1998. Build Green New Mexico standards and certifications are equal to or exceed the National Green Building Standards, and are the basis for qualifying for New Mexico State Sustainable Building Tax Credits, one of very few such credits in the nation.
Build Green New Mexico works closely with Builders to insure that the homes we certify comply with the necessary standards to achieve varying levels of performance, energy-efficiency, indoor air quality, and cost-effectiveness for the homeowner. Not only do the homes we certify have to meet rigorous standards, but the certification process itself is based on uncompromising protocols and procedures. With nearly 4000 homes certified under our program, Build Green New Mexico has the resources, experience and hard-earned credentials to help move residential construction into a more sustainable future for our children and the generations that follow.
