Decoding the "E" in ESG

A lot of things have shifted in the housing market over the last 6 months – changes in interest rates, consumer sentiment, and demand to name a few.  

At the same time, there has never been more investor interest and capital available for ESG-focused homebuilding and community development. The Inflation Reduction Act is also set to infuse more than $50 billion into clean energy technologies and improvements that will create ripple effects in housing.  

During this interactive session, we’ll focus on the bigger “E’s” in ESG – emissions + economics. Specifically, how to build greater resiliency into your business and (continue to) do well by doing good.  

We’ll explore: 
• Who’s setting the bar, how high, and what we can do to ensure goals are realistic, measurable, and marketable 
• What new sources of capital, paths to market, and revenue opportunities exist, and how to take advantage of them  
• How to go beyond ticking the boxes for an ESG report – taking incremental steps forward and creating meaningful change 
• How to make your business attractive for investment, mergers, and acquisition
Several perspectives will be represented — an investor looking to back ESG-focused initiatives; builders looking to set and deliver on greater sustainability standards, while unlocking new sources of capital; the federal government mandating higher performance; and an off-site provider looking to differentiate themselves as a high-performance building partner and a developer, in their own right.

Checking in with ENERGY STAR

It's been a minute! If things go according to plan, this will be the first in-person conference in over two years that the ENERGY STAR residential new construction team will be able to attend.
While we may have been remote, we've been busier than ever. Come hear the latest program updates, covering the sunset of Version 3.0, the launch of Version 3.2, and the creation of a brand-new certification label for homes and apartments that advance operational decarbonization; using HVAC grading to ease ENERGY STAR certification; the release of Revision 12; new communications materials; and more.
This session will get you back up to speed with the ENERGY STAR program and allow you to get your burning questions answered.

Next Level Water Efficiency with WaterSense V2 and HERS H20

The EPA’s WaterSense Labeled Homes program is rapidly growing through the implementation of Version 2. Using RESNET’s water rating companion to HERS, HERS H2O, to meet the water efficiency thresholds provides additional flexibility while still meeting the water efficiency and performance standards that the industry and consumers expect when they see the WaterSense label. This session will equip professionals with everything they need to know about the technical and certification requirements of WaterSense labeled homes V2 and the options for certification. It will include an overview of the how a home receives a HERS H2O rating. It will also include the results of a recently published field study that shows WaterSense labeled/HERS H2O rating homes are meeting and often exceeding their savings goals in the field!

More flexibility and choices let individual raters and builders use regionally and project specific appropriate water-saving strategies. By incorporating industry-led changes and practices, WaterSense labeled homes V2 and HERS H2O are leading the way to a stronger, more water-efficient building industry.
