Together with the Greater Atlanta HBA, Southface offers the regionally specific EarthCraft green building program to assist builders of homes, renovations, multifamily buildings, communities and light commercial facilities to save energy and water, meet strict indoor environmental quality standards and conserve natural resources.
Southface is actively engaged in helping shape energy policy at the federal, state and local level. The organization has served on numerous business, foundation, nonprofit, and government advisory committees and is often consulted by private industry and professional associations connected to the energy and building industry.
Grants to Green, a joint program of Southface and The Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta, helps nonprofits in the 23-county Atlanta region assess their facilities; identify energy-, water- and resource-efficiency upgrades; and adopt best management practices in sustainability.
Southface is one of only 36 national providers of services under the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED for Homes program — the most widely-recognized national green building certification program. Learn more about LEED for Homes.
Southface is at the leading edge of bringing the many environmental, economic and health benefits of green building practices to affordable housing. Green building makes sense for affordable housing because it helps save money for those with the least to spare, and improves indoor air quality for those more at risk for respiratory ailments.
