2020 National Green Building Standard (NGBS) Overview



In 2008, the National Green Building Standard ICC–700 (NGBS) earned ANSI approval as the first green rating system for residentially-used buildings. Since then, over 200,000 homes and apartments have earned Home Innovation’s NGBS Green certification, and over 130,000 homes are in-process to earn certification. ANSI recently approved the 2020 NGBS, the fourth version to date, with an expanded scope that applies to mixed-use buildings, assisted living facilities, hotels, dormitories, lodging houses, and even monasteries. The 2020 NGBS includes a certification path for the commercial space of mixed-use buildings; a new performance path for water efficiency; and new practices designed to promote resiliency, universal design, and wellness. The 2020 NGBS also provides for a streamlined path to certification for high-volume single-family builders. Come learn about the new 2020 NGBS and hear how its improvements can benefit your clients who want to build greener, more sustainable buildings. Get all the information you need to get your next project NGBS Green Certified.
