Green Planet Company: Developing Sustainable and Affordable Housing for a Better Tomorrow

Green Planet Company is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to creating quality, sustainable, and affordable housing. Our innovative projects and commitment to environmental stewardship not only help address the affordable housing crisis but also contribute positively to the local economy and the planet. A prime example of our work is the Great Hill Cottage Community, a two-phase development project in Guilford that showcases our dedication to sustainability and eco-friendly living.

Our Mission

Green Planet Company stands at the forefront of a nationwide movement to address the affordable housing crisis while celebrating our commitment to the environment. Our focus is not only on creating quality, sustainable, and affordable housing but also on contributing positively to local economies and the planet as a whole.

What Makes Us Unique?

Our approach to housing goes beyond the bricks and mortar; it's about building communities and nurturing them with eco-friendly living practices. Our commitment to innovation and sustainability is exemplified through the use of SIPs (Structural Insulated Panels) in our development projects.

These panels, made of two sheets of OSB (Oriented Strand Board) enveloping a slab of styrofoam, are manufactured off-site and then assembled on-site, providing a nearly airtight insulation. Unlike traditional building methods, SIPs ensure top-tier energy efficiency, aligning perfectly with our ethos of environmental stewardship. This unique construction technology sets us apart from the competition, as it not only supports our mission of affordable housing but also represents a forward-thinking approach to energy-conscious living.

A prime example of our dedication to sustainability is the Great Hill Cottage Community in Guilford, a two-phase development project that stands as a testament to our values. Learn more about this project and the technologies we use at

Nurturing Small Business at a Historic Crossroads for Hispanic Culture and Commerce: Q+A with Hector M. Treto

Latino/a/x entrepreneurs, many of them owners of small, neighborhood-serving businesses, contribute some $800 billion a year to the U.S. economy. In recognition of Hispanic Heritage Month, we checked in with Hector M. Treto, a businessperson himself and consultant with RAIL CDC in the Phoenix area. RAIL connects local entrepreneurs to Spanish-speaking small business experts who can help hone business plans and offer culturally relevant technical assistance.

How the LIFT Act Can Make Homeownership, and Strong Communities, a Reality for More Americans

In an op-ed for The Virginian-Pilot, LISC Virginia executive director Jane Ferrara lays out the ways the proposed LIFT Act could make homeownership, at 20-year, fixed rate mortgages, accessible to first-time, first-generation buyers—the very people who are often edged out of the American Dream. The legislation, in partnership with home-buying programs like the ones LISC leads, Ferrara writes, can help "bridge the racial wealth gap as well as the gap between dreams and reality for the next generation of aspiring homeowners."
