Welcome to Passive House Pennsylvania

Our Mission is to fight climate change by driving the transformation of the built environment towards healthier, more equitable, high-performing, zero-carbon outcomes through the promotion of the International Passive House Standard.

Our Vision is to engage and collaborate with diverse stakeholders from across the buildings ecosystem including leaders in: Government, Institutions, Education, Research, Real Estate/Finance, Design/Engineering, Construction, Building Materials and Building Performance Consulting. We advocate, educate, connect, and empower all with the best of building science; developed by the Passive House Institute.

We are a chapter of the North American Passive House Network (NAPHN).
