Home Depot and U.S. Green Building Council Launch Green Database Website

Home Depot and the USGBC recently announced the launching of an online green home products database. The site is leed.homedepot.com and will be a “microsite” on homedepot.com that will feature products within the green home building family. Some of these products will be the kind that earn LEED points and/or are required when looking to earn LEED certification.

Despite a slow housing market, green homes are expected to increase from last year’s 17% of new residential construction to 38% in 2016, according to last week’s report by McGraw-Hill Construction.

The new Home Depot/LEED site should help that prediction become reality by making green products more easy to find for homeowners and builders, particularly those looking to achieve LEED certification.
