Habitat for Humanity Saint Louis is very proud of its efforts and best practices using a holistic approach to building an energy efficient and sustainable home for the homebuyer, the community, and the environment.
Habitat for Humanity International, in partnership with the Home Depot Foundation Sustainable Building Program, provided training, resources, and financial support towards our 2008 LEED Platinum Certification. The 2008 Case Study provides a synopsis of the project.
Since 2008, all of our new home construction projects have been built to LEED Platinum Standards. The one exception was our 2010 rebuild project in Florissant, which received a LEED Gold Certification.
