“The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is proud to be approaching one million
ENERGY STAR labeled homes in 2009, but recognizes this achievement was only
possible with critical contributions from the nation’s leading home builders.
Through their commitment to innovation, American home buyers benefit from better
performing homes that cost less to own and help protect the environment. Pulte
Homes is one of these leading builders that stands out for their outstanding efforts
constructing ENERGY STAR Qualified Homes. In addition to being one of the first
large national home builders to join as a partner in 1996, Pulte Homes currently
has the most divisions as active partners and the most completed labeled homes.
EPA applauds this effort as, more than ever, the nation must continue to build
homes that are truly energy efficient to protect our climate, national security
interests and economy.”
-Sam Rashkin, National Director, ENERGY STAR for Homes
From digging and drainage to sticks and bricks to flushes and fluorescent bulbs, the homebuilding process can have a significant impact on the environment. And beyond the great outdoors, we’re also creating a safe, secure and healthy indoor environment in which a family spends a great deal of time. Pulte Homes strives to turn the environmental impact of residential construction into an opportunity for sustainable product use, water conservation, waste reduction and a minimization of impact on our natural resources.
In our homes, Pulte has emerged as a leader in energy efficient homebuilding. Our markets around the country are continuously looking at ways to maximize energy savings and conserve water for our homeowners while minimizing our impact on the environment during the construction process.
In our communities, Pulte Homes has refined the land planning and development process to better incorporate preservation of natural landscapes, focus on stormwater management procedures, and explore water conservation and reclamation techniques for the maintenance of common areas.
In our operations, Pulte Homes strives to ensure that our office and jobsite operations are as much in line with our sustainability principles as the construction of our homes and communities.
