The American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) Foundation and the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) have partnered to create nationwide best practice guidelines for green residential remodeling for existing homes. The guidelines will be supplemented by training programs and other resources for building professionals and homeowners as part of the REGREEN program.
REGREEN seeks to increase understanding of sustainable renovation project practices and benefits among homeowners, residents, design professionals, product suppliers and service providers.
The public is invited to review and comment on a draft of the guidelines at www.regreenprogram.org before the comment period closes on December 10, 2007. The final guidelines will be released at INTERIORS 08: The ASID Conference on Design in March.
