Looking to hire a green pro but don't know where to go? Let the National Association of Home Builders help. As of last month, 1,500 people have earned the designation of Certified Green Professional (CGP) under the NAHB National Green Building Program. The CGP designation recognizes builders, remodelers and other industry professionals who understand how to incorporate green building principles into homes and provide green building expertise for consumers.
Consumers can find Certified Green Professionals in their states by using the Builder and Remodeler Designation Directory on NAHB's Web site. Learn all about the rise of green-savvy builders and brokers in "Green Occupations."
I'm looking at pursuing a master's degree in sustainability at Arizona State University. Whether people/corporations are going green to save money, the environment, or simply to attract attention, the green bandwagon could have a great impact on our environment.
