GREENER STOCK

Authentic Materials, Thoughtful Designs

OUR PLEDGE

We are continually challenging ourselves and our partners to:

  • Minimize pollution and energy consumption
  • Keep up with ever-changing programs, technologies, and building materials
  • Achieve environmental sustainability through third-party verification

KEY FACTORS WE CONSIDER

  • Indoor environmental quality: filtering of air; the mix of indoor/outdoor air; and prevention of volatile organic compounds (VOC’s) via the selection of materials and cleaning agents.
  • Energy efficiency or low energy consumption: selecting light fixtures; insulation; heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems; ventilation systems; doors; appliances; and windows
  • Protection of natural resources: efficient building systems; use of recycled and rapidly renewable materials; and smart delivery of materials to the job site.

  • Site sensitivity: protecting existing vegetation; orientation of the structure; management of stormwater; landscaping; construction and demolition debris removal; and recycling

  • Water efficiency: selecting plumbing fixtures and appliances; reusing wastewater; and efficient irrigation

We believe in continuous improvement, and we are constantly challenging construction methods and procedures, staying abreast of new technologies and evaluating life-cycle costs. Our dedication to Transitional Real Estate encourages us to Repair, Reuse, Recycle...

LEED FOR HOMES

OUR BELIEF 

GREENER STOCK encourages homeowners to switch to the LEED for Homes rating system, which “promotes the design and construction of high-performance green homes” (USGBC.org). This is one of the several LEED rating systems and is tailored to different building types and project scopes.


A project can achieve one of the four tiers of LEED certification (certified, silver, gold, and platinum). Certification is based on points awarded in the following eight categories:

  • Innovation and Design
  • Location and Linkages
  • Sustainable Sites
  • Indoor Environmental Quality
  • Water Efficiency
  • Energy and Atmosphere

  • Materials and Resources

  • Awareness and Education

BENEFITS OF GREEN HOMES

Owners and residents of homes built to the LEED for Homes standards experience many benefits.

Some of these benefits include:

  • Proximity to employment centers, transit, restaurants, schools, and other community resources
  • Lowered household operation costs due to high-efficiency appliances, toilets, and building materials
  • Healthier air quality due to low- and no- VOC paints and materials
  • Highly durable and energy efficient finishes and floors

Owners and residents of LEED for Homes buildings can benefit from third-party performance testing as well as verification and certification. They can also be assured that their home is truly green.
