2015 Enterprise Green Communities Criteria
The 2015 Enterprise Green Communities Criteria continue our 10-year tradition of capturing the collective experience of affordable housing developers and leading housing and green building organizations and experts. This collaborative approach provides a clear, cost-effective framework for affordable housing. Our commitment to a thorough integrative design process, optimized location and site features, water conservation, energy efficiency, and property operations practices is re-doubled in the 2015 Criteria.
And for the first time, we have included thoughtful integration of resilient design features and have expanded our emphasis on residents’ health. The Criteria are suitable for all development types, including New Construction, Substantial Rehab, and Moderate Rehab in both multifamily and single-family projects.
