What is a CERTIFIED GREEN PROFESSIONAL?
Green is the buzzword of this decade and we seem to find it cropping up in some of the most unlikely places. In general, most people can agree that managing the environment and controlling our consumption is a responsibility that humans share. But what does green really mean when it comes to homes? Certainly homes and businesses could be more energy efficient, and some practices in building can manage consumption in a positive and renewable manner.
The Certified Green Professional™ designation recognizes builders, remodelers and other industry professionals who incorporate green building principles into homes— without driving up the cost of construction. Classwork leading to the designation provides a solid background in green building methods, as well as the tools to reach consumers, from the organization leading the charge to provide market-driven green building solutions to the home building industry.
