Green Built Home Contractors

Green Built Home (GBH) is a national award-winning building initiative that reviews and certifies new homes and remodeling projects that meet sustainable building and energy standards. Since 1997, local builders associations have worked with GBH to certify over 5,000 homes throughout the state.

Why Build Green?

In this sluggish building climate, positioning your company is vital. Certifying your building projects will give your organization a unique edge and valuable benefits, including: 
  • Highlights on the Wisconsin Environmental Initiative Facebook page. We want to show off your projects and successes to our followers and your prospective clients.
  • A listing on WEI’s freshly redesigned website. With a new look, simplified navigation and interactive media, our website attracts over 3,000 unique monthly visitors and you can be sure to expand your company's reach. 
  • Plugs to the press. Excited about a new green building project? As a credible third party verifier, we can help alert local media outlets about your commitment to innovation.
  • Exclusive access to the Green Built Home logo, so your company can promote its standards and commitment to sustainability. 
  • Project registration discounts, so you can continue to provide your services at an affordable price.
  • Individualized technical support from certified verifiers.
