June 11, 2007

The NAHB Research Center Executive Standards Committee has appointed members to the Consensus Committee on the National Green Building Standard. This committee will represent the industry in its efforts to develop and publish an American National Standards Institute-approved standard on residential green building. The committee is made up of more than 40 groups representing a broad spectrum of the industry.

The new standard, which will be applicable to all new home construction, including multifamily units, is expected to be completed in early 2008. The full list of members of the Consensus Committee can be found at www.nahbrc.org/gbstandard.
