For contractors and builders, the GreenPoint Rated label adds value to the services you provide your customers. Add green building expertise to all your business offerings and give homeowners the assurance that their homes are healthier, and both energy and resource efficient.
The GreenPoint Rated label is the mark of quality for green home construction. It is a recognizable, independent seal of approval that verifies a home has been built or remodeled according to proven green standards. Studies show that green labels like GreenPoint Rated can improve property values up to 10% at time of sale.

ENERGY EFFICIENCY: lighting · insulation · heating and cooling
RESOURCE CONSERVATION: recycled materials · durable buildings
INDOOR AIR QUALITY: healthier materials · optimal ventilation
