The Green Homes Tour is a program of the San Diego Green Building Council, a 501c3 community benefit nonprofit organization. SDGBC is a local aligned community of the US Green Building Council (previously known as the USGBC Chapters), partner to the International Living Future Institute and host to a local Living Building Challenge Collaborative.
Each year, the San Diego Green Homes Tour brings together hundreds of members of the local community to celebrate best practices in green building and design while showcasing the innovative work of some of the industry’s top professionals.
The diverse projects include sustainably constructed or remodeled single-family residences, urban multifamily developments and many projects that are GreenPoint Rated or LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Certified, the top third-party verification system for sustainable structures around the world.
On the self-guided tour, attendees may visit as many of the homes as they like, meet with industry professionals and homeowners, and learn more about the latest green home design, construction and upgrade options.
Each eco-friendly project features innovative, high-performance design features including impact areas such as energy and water conservation, building materials, indoor air quality, landscaping and sustainable building sites.
