New Audit Protocol Standardizes Sustainable Housing

The Enterprise Retrofit Audit Protocol will facilitate funding for retrofitting affordable housing by establishing a “baseline for metrics and disclosures in the analysis of green improvements.”

The protocol was developed by Enterprise Community Partners, Inc. and CAS Financial Advisory Services.

In addition to financial considerations, the protocol requires underwriters to examine the health implications of proposed retrofits to residents and building maintenance workers, as well as to determine the property’s impact on the environment. The information generated can be used to evaluate which energy and water saving measures to use in an affordable housing retrofit.
