The nation’s largest-scale integrated owner, operator, and developer of single-family rentals has released its 6th annual report dedicated to the company’s performance, progress, and aspirations toward building a more sustainable future.

AMH has every home they build HERS® rated. In its Energy Efficiency section, the AMH Sustainability Report states that the company, “uses the RESNET Home Energy Rating System (HERS ®) to evaluate the anticipated energy efficiency of our developments. A HERS rating is an assessment of predicted energy performance. Scores typically range from 0-150, with 0 being a zero net energy home and 100 being built to the 2006 International Energy Conservation Code. Our average HERS score was 59.5 among our 2,317 newly built homes in 2023, 2.4 points better than the prior year. In other words, AMH-built homes are designed to use 40.5% less energy than a house built to the 2006 model energy code and 54% less than a typical home in this country.”

AMH is the 39th largest homebuilder in the US. It has operations in 21 states. The company owns and manages 59,332 homes. In 2023, it opened 27 new communities.

David P. Singelyn, AMH’s Chief Executive Officer commented, “Sustainability at AMH means responsibly integrating environmental, social, and governance considerations into our corporate strategy to deliver long-term value to all our stakeholders, including our customers, team, investors, vendors, and neighbors. We remain firmly committed to  operating mindfully in our workplaces and residences, mitigating our impact on the environment, and earning the trust of those who support and rely on us.”
