Single-Family Green MBS
The Single-Family Green Mortgage-Backed Security (MBS) is another important step in Fannie Mae's commitment to leading and innovating in green finance.
As part of our Green Bond Program, Fannie Mae is issuing Single-Family Green MBS, which include only mortgage loans backed by newly constructed single-family residential homes with ENERGY STAR® certifications that meet or exceed the national program requirements for ENERGY STAR Certified Homes, Version 3.0.
The Single-Family Green MBS program recently received a Light Green Second Opinion from CICERO Shades of Green, a leading global provider of green ratings for bonds. CICERO Second Opinions are independent, research-based evaluations of green bond investment frameworks to determine the environmental robustness of green bonds and offer investors better insight into the environmental quality of these bonds.
ENERGY STAR Certified Collateral
Fannie Mae selected the ENERGY STAR Certification for New Homes (Residential) designation because it is recognized for its:
- Nationally and globally distinguished standard for energy efficiency
- Achievement of at least 10% more efficiency than homes built to code and a 20% improvement on average
- Independent verification by trained and certified Home Energy Raters
Fannie Mae partnered with PEG, LLC to ensure that all properties underlying the MBS received the ENERGY STAR certification.
Future Single-Family Green MBS issuances may include other energy-efficient new construction standards that meet or exceed ENERGY STAR Certified Homes, Version 3.0.
