Third Party Verification
Third party verification is an optional credit, initiated by the builder on a voluntary basis for the Built Green® Program at the 2- and 3-Star levels, and is required on 4 & 5-Star level projects. A third party verifier performs the role of an independent, neutral entity in conducting evaluations/verifications for use by the Built Green® program. The primary objective of third party assessments/verifications is to authenticate both the information provided by builders on the Built Green® checklists and the builders' assertions of having achieved a specified level of performance. Independent verifiers are hired by builders for added assurance that submitted checklists accurately reflect the work performed.
The verifiers follow an itemized checklist of criteria to verify based on the Built Green checklist. Verifiers also adhere to a Code of Ethics.
Current Built Green® Verifiers are:
