NGBS – The NAHB ICC-700 Standard
This residential green building standard was established in a cooperative effort between NAHB and the International Code Council (ICC) and approved by ANSI (the American National Standards Council). It applies to single-family homes, multi-family housing projects, site development and home remodeling.

There are four levels for certification – bronze, silver, gold, and emerald. A "scoring tool" is available at to help builders keep track of progress toward certification in seven areas of compliance, including lot preparation, resource efficiency, water efficiency, energy efficiency and indoor environment quality.

LEED-H (LEED for Homes)
The LEED-H program (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is the designation for residential green building certification under the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). LEED for Homes is a voluntary green home rating system that ensures homes are designed and built to be energy and resource efficient and healthy for occupants. LEED can be applied to single and multi-family homes. Categories in which builders can accrue points for green building practices include innovation and design process, location and linkages, sustainable sites, water efficiency, energy and atmosphere, materials and resources, indoor environment quality, and awareness and education. For more information about LEED-H visit the USGBS Web site at

Energy Star for Homes
Energy Star qualification is a joint program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Energy. Building an Energy Star home means making environmentally responsible and sustainable decisions throughout the building process. These “green” decisions minimize the environmental impact of the home while it is being built, as well as over the life of the home. The objective of the Energy Star for Homes program is to reduce the energy consumption of one of America’s largest users of energy – American homes. EPA data indicates that homes account for 15% of energy consumption nationwide. New homes that are built with certain energy saving improvements are eligible to earn the Energy Star label.

California Air Resources Board (CARB)
The California Air Resources Board (CARB) is the "clean air agency" for the state of California. In April 2007, CARB voted to implement limitations for formaldehyde emissions that apply to composite panels including particleboard and medium density fiberboard (MDF). In April 2008, the final rules for formaldehyde emissions for composite panels were codified into law. The California regulation governs the formaldehyde in both raw composite wood panels and finished products ducts that are manufactured from composite panels (such as cabinets, store fixtures, flooring, molding, millwork, etc.) that are sold, supplied, offered for sale, or manufactured for sale or use in California.

Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)-Certified Products
FSC standards represent the world's strongest system for guiding forest management toward sustainable outcomes. The FSC oversees a series of accreditation processes from forest management to product certification. Hardwoods Incorporates is FSC Certified for Chain of Custody (CoC) and offers a selection of FSC-certified products. FSC chain of custody is a tracking system from the forest to the end consumer that allows manufacturers and distributors to demonstrate that materials come from a forest that is responsibly managed in accordance with the FSC principles and criteria. It tracks the flow of certified wood through the supply chain and through each successive stage of production -- including processing, transformation and manufacturing - all the way to the final product and the final distribution location.

The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System™, developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), provides a list of standards for environmentally sustainable construction. LEED promotes a whole-building approach to sustainability by recognizing performance in five key areas of human and environmental health: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection, and indoor environmental quality. To earn LEED certification, a building project must meet certain prerequisites and performance benchmarks (“credits”) within each category.
