The purpose and scope of this report is to provide a comparison the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) National Green Building Standard (NGBS) and the Minnesota GreenStar New Homes and Remodeling standard, both of which are available in Minnesota. This report compares and contrasts the programs’ basic processes, general usability, and the environmental benchmarks that each program’s standard embodies. This report is based on the Minnesota GreenStar checklist and manual versions available as of January 1, 2009, and the National Green Building Standard Second Public Draft version.
