TopBuild is committed to operating in a manner which conserves our natural resources for future generations and adheres to environmental laws and regulations. In 2019, we created and staffed an EPA Compliance Department to establish a strong foundation for the future. This group is responsible for oversight of environmental issues that may impact both field operations and corporate locations (e.g., compliance with Federal (EPA) and state environmental program requirements, including air, water, wastewater, storm water, solid and hazardous waste, EPCRA). The group has also established partnerships with leading environmental services companies leading to metrics driven waste management strategies and increased oversight of our waste generation. Our focus remains on better quantifying environmental metrics to create actionable initiatives to reduce fuel consumption, minimize waste, and combat climate change.

Building energy codes set minimum efficiency boundaries that provide tangible benefits such as reduced energy consumption, increased cost savings, and reduced CO2 emissions. These requirements affect the building envelope, doors, windows, HVAC systems, lighting, and water heating systems. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, building energy codes are expected to save U.S. home and business owners 841 million metric tons of avoided carbon dioxide emissions through 2040.
TopBuild Home Services deploys a national team of local energy code and energy testing compliance experts. Upon state adoption of a new energy code, we conduct code compliance training internally and with builders to ensure they are meeting the new energy code regulations.
We are also innovative leaders in building science, offering a number of services and tools designed to help builders apply building science principles to new home construction. These programs help builders construct more energy-efficient, comfortable, and durable homes, compared to conventional code-built homes.
