We know Atlanta is not normally considered the epicenter of Green Building but au contraire, our green building friends. Did you know Atlanta has 101 LEED certified buildings as of late November 2010? We also have the leading non-profit in the Southeast, Southface. And now this… This was pulled from the Green Building Advisor.
In Atlanta, Enterprise and The Home Depot Foundation have joined forces to create the Green Home Advantage program. The program ensures that all properties acquired through the federal Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP) in Atlanta meet a set of baseline green requirements developed by Enterprise and the City of Atlanta.
The program also offers technical assistance, trainings, and the opportunity for green certification.
“These best practices lower utility costs, conserve water and other resources. They also replace dilapidated, vacant structures with healthy, affordable homes and neighborhoods. The result will significantly improve the outlook for communities.”
— John O’Callaghan, President & CEO
