ENTERPRISE GREEN COMMUNITIES
Enterprise Green Communities helps developers, investors, builders and policymakers make the transition to a green future for affordable housing. This Standard has been developed to bring the improved health, economic and environmental benefits of sustainable construction practices to low-income families.
Fitwel is a health and wellness standard for buildings developed by the General Services Administration and Centers for Disease Control. Its features are based on systematic research and data pertaining to health and productivity. It is aimed at helping facility managers and building owners evaluate many important operations and design factors that go into creating a healthy workplace, from proximity to public transit, walkability, bike parking, indoor air quality, healthy food access, and stairwell design.
The WELL Building Standard® is a performance-based system for measuring, certifying, and monitoring features of the built environment that impact human health and wellbeing, through air, water, nourishment, light, fitness, comfort, and mind. WELL is grounded in a body of medical research that explores the connection between the buildings where we spend more than 90 percent of our time, and the health and wellness of its occupants.
INTERNATIONAL GREEN CONSTRUCTION CODE
The IgCC is the first model code to include sustainability measures for the entire construction project and its site — from design through construction, certificate of occupancy and beyond. The new code contributes toward building efficiency, waste reduction, and improved health, safety and community welfare.
