The Passive House Difference
Most buildings, even “green” buildings, are uncomfortable, use too much energy, provide poor indoor air quality, and are expensive to operate. The building industry is generally confused about what drives performance. We demystify the impact of design and construction choices, raise expectations, and transform how you think and work.
We offer introductory, core certification and advanced courses to help you take next steps in making your next building a climate solution. Become a member and participate with our expert network through regional chapters and national events.

Star Garment Factory
The Star Garment Factory, located in Sri Lanka, achieved the EnerPHit Certification as a pilot project. Given the hot and humid climate, and equipment heavy usage, this project demonstrated the flexibility and effectiveness of Passive House standards in addressing diverse uses and climates.
