RESNET Featured in Green Builder Magazine’s “The Evolving Role of Associations” Issue

Jun 28, 2018

RESNET is one of 14 building industry associations profiled in Green Builder Magazine’s article, The Evolving Role of Associations, in its May-June, 2018 issue.

As Alan Naditz writes, associations like RESNET “inform, educate, certify and advise. They help stimulate an exchange of ideas between colleagues and competitors. And they keep the construction industry in a forward-thinking mode. When we approached these key, behind-the-scenes construction industry representatives, they happily put the word out about what they’ve accomplished and how they plan to lead green building into the next decade.”

With over 2 million homes HERS® rated, including 1 million rated within just the past 5 years, RESNET Executive Director Steve Baden notes, “Half of all new homebuyers want an energy-efficient home. The HERS® Index makes what was invisible—energy efficiency—into a visible factor by which to compare homes. As builders help homeowners and buyers compare total home cost and value, the HERS® Index Score provides a third-party verification of a home’s energy efficiency.”


The issue also highlights the International Code Council (ICC), which notes its collaboration with RESNET to focus on standards that support sustainability—specifically, the HERSH2O® Water Efficiency Rating Standard.


Each association feature also includes a sidebar with a member organization. RESNET Rating Provider PEG LLC, out of Fairfax, VA is quoted as saying that its collaboration with RESNET has enabled the company to grow to more than 100 team members serving 13 of the 15 largest homebuilders nationwide and its membership has also been a significant factor in its selection by the EPA’s Energy Star program as a Partner of the Year for the last several years, and as a Sustained Excellence recipient for the past two years.
