Pearl Drives Sustainable Market Transformation

As a Public Benefit Corporation, Pearl Certification collaborates with organizations, states, and municipalities to implement market transformation initiatives that deliver tangible results. Our case studies showcase successful programs that are transforming the housing stock for the better, benefiting homeowners and communities alike.

Pearl offers third-party certification supported by decades of energy-efficiency expertise and building science. We help the public sector reach residential energy conservation, decarbonization, and electrification goals by driving demand for energy-efficient home improvements. 

How does this work? We call it the Home Value Cycle and it fuels the theory behind our market transformation strategy.

Our Certification and Standards

P3 Home Page Cert

Pearl's Certification System captures, categorizes, and communicate a home’s high-performing features. Our certification standards are built on building science and subject matter expertise and translated for non-building science experts, such as homeowners and all parties involved in the real estate transaction, providing high-quality, accurate information about how homes can be built, improved, and accurately valued.

Pearl is designed to work with other scores, labels, and standards. We're a proud ENERGY STAR Partner and works in collaboration with the Home Performance with ENERGY STAR program, the ENERGY STAR Home Upgrade program, and the U.S. Department of Energy's Home Energy Score labeling program.
