The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) has developed the professional designation CGP, which "recognizes builders and remodelers who incorporate green building principles into homes— without driving up the cost of construction. Classwork leading to the designation provides a solid background in green building methods, as well as the tools to reach consumers, from the organization leading the charge to provide market-driven green building solutions to the home building industry."

Earning the CGP title requires certification in an NAHB program specifically designed to qualify a builder as an expert in Green Building.
