About Our Programs

We provide:

- Training for builders/renovators 

- A “how to” process for builders/renovators and homeowners

- A sustainably built homes' certification process with four performance levels: Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum

Our programs and processes:

Single Family

High Density (HD) projects includes multi-storey and residential tower



Our certification recognizes the authenticity of the home and offers credibility, as you’re able to review a detailed report and a checklist, showing which products were used. For the homeowner, you have a reference for the maintenance of the home and can rely on home performance expectations associated with the certification. And certification offers you bragging rights—proudly display the certification of your home by investing in a BUILT GREEN® plaque that appears on the outside of the home or on the sidewalk.


*The Natural Resources Canada EnerGuide Rating System is part of the certification process for our Single Family and Renovations programs. All BUILT GREEN® Single Family and Renovation homes benchmark their energy efficiency against the EnerGuide Rating System. View the Natural Resources EnerGuide website.

Innovation Points

Through checklist points, we are encouraging builders to integrate innovative sustainable building practices above and beyond what is contained within our programs. The innovation must apply to a specific BUILT GREEN® project and will be reviewed by the Technical Standards Committee at the time of submission.
