The FGBC Certified Green Home Designation

The FGBC Green Home Standard indicates the criteria by which a Florida home, new or existing, can be designated green. Certifying Agents can guide designers, builders or homebuyers through the process of qualifying and documenting green homes.

Choosing Green

By choosing to build green, you have chosen to reduce the burden on the environment and add value to your home through a voluntary Florida green home designation as administered by the Florida Green Building Coalition. FGBC's purpose is to provide you with the tools and guidance necessary to help you please your customer, as well as reward and promote your efforts as a Florida friendly builder.

Why should you support a green design designation?

Many homeowners are desiring and some insisting that their home be earth friendly, affordable to operate, and healthy to live in. FGBC's Green Home Standard is a tool that will guide you and your customer through the process of selecting green features that are cost effective, benefit the environment, and will fit in with your current practice. The standard has been developed such that it is achievable by everyone and will be recognized as a statewide industry standard.

Home Certification Process

The Florida Green Home Standard Checklist and Reference Guide can be downloaded using the links on this page and will help an FGBC Green Home Certifying Agent provide an evaluation of the home. The FGBC Green Home Checklist is detailed to new home and existing home requirements. The FGBC Green Home Reference Guide goes along with the Checklist and is intended for two purposes: to provide information on green home practices and provide details on how to earn points for complying with the Florida Green Home Designation Standard.

All FGBC Green Home Certification applications must be submitted to FGBC by an FGBC Certifying Agent with an" active" status. The status of Certifying Agents can be verified on the FGBC website under the SEARCH tab.
