Enterprise Green Communities provides funding and technical expertise to help build, rehabilitate and operate healthier, more efficient homes. By developing the Enterprise Green Communities Criteria – the first green building framework to address the unique needs of the affordable housing sector – this organization works to bring the improved health, economical and environmental benefits of sustainable construction practices to low-income families. The Enterprise Green Communities Criteria are grouped into eight categories: integration and design, location and neighborhood fabric, site improvements, water conservation, energy efficiency, materials beneficial to the environment, healthy living environment, and operations and maintenance. Since its inception in 2004, Enterprise Green Communities has supported 550 organizations across the country, created and rehabilitated 38,000 homes, and has invested more than $2 billion in the development and preservation of healthy, green affordable homes.
