The National Association of REALTORS® is committed to the principles of sustainability, energy conservation and the safe extraction of domestic energy supplies. Our members believe that increased energy conservation and energy efficiency, coupled with domestic expansion and development of existing and new domestic energy sources are essential to our nation's security and economic prosperity.
To help advance an economically prosperous and environmentally sustainable future, NAR is committed to supporting all commercially reasonable strategies with voluntary, performance-based incentives to reduce greenhouse gases and use energy more efficiently. Market-based, cost effective solutions energize the nation’s entrepreneurial spirit and drive innovation in cutting emissions and growing domestic supplies of carbon-based and renewable forms of energy.
NAR’s Commitment in Action
NAR’s commitment to the environment is clearly visible in its Washington, D.C. office building, the first privately-owned commercial building in the nation’s capital to be LEED Silver certified. Additionally, NAR’s Green Designation program will educate REALTORS® about the advantages of energy efficiency and environmental sustainability; expertise that benefits their clients and helps grow their businesses. NAR's Smart Growth program also provides grants and technical assistance for sustainable, environmentally-sound development initiatives in communities nationwide.
