Home Builders Association of Southeastern Michigan (HBA) is committed to conducting business in an environmentally responsible and proactive manner, consistent with our commitment to corporate citizenship, social responsibility and sustainability.
Our experience has demonstrated that sustainable business practices are cost-effective and build employee, member and customer loyalty.
We aim to conserve natural resources and minimize waste through source reduction and recycling; handling and disposal of waste through safe, environmentally responsible methods; encouraging energy efficiency and the use of renewable energy sources; and encouraging our members to strive for the same high levels of environmental performance.
Finally, environmentally-sound, residential "green building" is no longer a trend, it is the future of home construction. HBA supports various, on-going local, state and national residential green building and related educational programs, including but not limited to:
- NAHB's Certified Green Professional education and certification
- NAHB's development of the ANSI Model Green Home Building Guidelines and Standard
- Actively maintaining and promoting the Southeast Michigan chapter of GreenBuilt™ Michigan
