WASHINGTON - In recognition of the growth of green building, the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) will celebrate “Green Day” on Thursday, Feb. 14, at the International Builders’ Show® in Orlando, Fla.

On Green Day, the association will officially launch the NAHB National Green Building Program and will unveil the new Certified Green Professional educational designation for home builders, remodelers, and other industry professionals.

A dedicated green building display will allow participants to try out a new online scoring tool which is an important component of the NAHB National Green Building Program. The scoring tool shows how green building techniques and materials will affect a new home and allows builders and consumers to select the measures and materials that are most cost effective and best meet their needs.

Also on the docket is a full day of green educational seminars on topics from market trends and consumer research to innovative design and new products. Noted green architect and educator William McDonough is the featured speaker Thursday morning and will also conduct an in-depth session on “Cradle to Cradle” environmentally and ecologically efficient building practices.

Attendees also will learn more about the upcoming introduction of the National Green Building Standard. This consensus-based green standard for single- and multifamily housing, residential remodeling, and lot and site development is expected to be approved by the American National Standards Institute and unveiled in March.

More than 170 companies have added their products and services to the new green category for exhibitors.

The International Builders’ Show is scheduled for Feb. 13-16, 2008 at the Orange County Convention Center, Orlando, Fla. For more information, visit www.buildersshow.com.
