2011 Green Building Council President:
Howard Fortunato, Landmark/JCM
The Green Building Council of the Home Builders Association of Delaware brings together those in the housing industry who participate in the planning, building, remodeling, marketing and selling of high-performance green homes and related products and services. Its purpose is to provide and promote green certification programs and educational opportunities for its members and the public. The council provides a forum for professionals in the industry to promote green home standards and best practices, to network with others in the industry and to take a proactive role as leaders in the green housing industry.
The benefits of a green home are to promote energy savings, healthy living, energy and water conservation and be sensitive to the environment. These homes have overall lower total energy costs due to increased efficiencies, resulting in a net total monthly housing expense savings over a traditional home.
