A Commitment to Building Better


Since 2009, Meritage has been an early adopter and leader of a green mission in the homebuilding industry. Meritage was one of the first U.S. public production builders to commit to building 100% ENERGY STAR® certified homes. Our energy efficiency attributes and smart home technology features help our homeowners reduce their energy and water consumption as well as their monthly utility bills. Since 2020, we have also certified new homes in certain geographies under the US EPA’s Indoor airPLUS program. All of our new homes are equipped with ENERGY STAR® appliances and WaterSense certified water fixtures.

Climate Disclosure: Following last year’s inaugural annual Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (“TCFD”) report, the current year’s TCFD data is merged into the 2022 ESG Report and includes enhanced climate analysis.
