Green Building Coordination of Energy Star and WaterSense

EPA recently issued a new green building strategy to facilitate the mainstream adoption of green building practices. The strategy builds upon and calls for better coordination among existing programs, such as Energy Star and WaterSense, which are designed to reduce the impacts of buildings and development.

Green Building Research

The strategy also includes an increased focus on research. In fact, EPA already has invested a significant amount of funding in green building research, including more than 80 grants and fellowships awarded by the National Center for Environmental Research. The center has also awarded more than $5 million through its Small Business Innovative Research contracts.

Green Building Benefits

Understanding the benefits of green building on people is important, as Americans spend nearly 90 percent of their time in buildings. Currently, buildings are responsible for nearly 40 percent of U.S. energy use and about 40 percent of U.S. carbon dioxide emissions, the primary greenhouse gas. But there are many opportunities to reduce these impacts in the buildings where we live, work and play.

NCER's mission is to support high-quality research by the nation's leading scientists that will improve EPA’s scientific basis for decisions on national environmental issues. NCER supports leading edge extramural research in exposure, effects, risk assessment, and risk management through competitions for STAR grants, fellowships, and research contracts under the Small Business Innovative Research Program.
