“Today marks a transformative moment for the future of housing and building strong, sustainable communities. The release of the National Definition of a Zero Emissions Building provides clarity and a sharper focus as the affordable housing sector pursues an equitable transition to green energy so we can achieve critical climate goals and create more affordable homes. Enterprise’s leadership in sustainability—through our Green Communities initiative and Power Forward Communities collaborative—will continue to address the climate crisis affecting communities across the United States. We appreciate and commend the White House and the Department of Energy for listening to our industry and setting this benchmark, which will align housing providers, architects, contractors, and the building science community and inform their efforts to eliminate greenhouse gas emissions. This Definition will also serve as a critical policy tool—enabling housing authorities and developers to set clear targets and goals that prioritize the benefits of zero-carbon emissions and create healthy, resilient affordable housing nationwide.”
