Mission Statement

Mission:

Our mission is to drive positive impact to our environment by transforming residential building practices.

Description

Minnesota GreenStar is a leading residential building standards and certification program created by Minnesotans for Minnesotans. The program
promotes healthy, durable, high-performance design and construction for both new and existing homes across Minnesota. Fundamental to the program is an
objective, third-party verification system that assures consumers that the new home or remodeling project performs as designed.

Our green certification program takes a whole-systems approach applying the five (5) key concepts of green building programs - energy efficiency, resource efficiency (including durability), indoor environmental quality, water conservation, site and community - to the eight (8) components of the traditional building process - outdoor and site, building envelope and systems, mechanicals, electrical and lighting, plumbing systems and fixtures, finish materials and coatings, waste management - in order to improve the impact of green building programs on individuals, their families, the community, and the environment
