Whether you build affordable or market-rate apartments or work for a national or regional developer, green certification is affordable and straightforward with a ROI worth your attention. In this webinar replay, three top multifamily development executives share their insight and experience into how they build green, challenges they have overcome and how green certification assists in funding and improving long-term property value. 

The National Green Building Standard (NGBS) is the first green building standard developed by ICC and ASHRAE, and approved by ANSI, that offers a flexible, rigorous and affordable rating system for multifamily residential buildings. In this webinar replay, you will learn about NGBS requirements, understand how the certification process works and hear from two multifamily executives and an expert verifier about why their successful development strategy includes earning NGBS Green certification for their apartment communities.  


Participants in this webinar replay will:

  • Describe how to earn NGBS Green certification for your multifamily projects and what it will cost
  • Recognize the financing and valuation incentives available to NGBS Green certified properties
  • Review the NGBS Green’s compliance requirements and how to maximize the value of verification and how it will set your project apart from the competition



  • Lisa Stephens, President of Saigebrook Development
  • Kyle Abney, NGBS Green Verifier, Abney & Abney Green Solutions



  • Michelle Foster, Vice President, Innovation Services, Home Innovation Research Labs
