Core Green Building Certification

10 best-practice achievements for sustainable buildngs.

The Core Green Building Certification℠ (Core) is a simple framework that outlines the 10 best-practice achievements that a building must obtain to be considered a green or sustainable building. It puts the connection to nature, equity and the need for a building to be loved on even footing with the typical water, energy and materials concerns.

Core seeks to rapidly diminish the gap between the highest levels of established green building certification programs and the aspirations of the Living Building Challenge.
