Vermont Passive House (VTPH) is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to promote the Passive House Building Energy Standard in Vermont. Through public outreach, education, advocacy, and training, VTPH provides opportunities for practitioners, industry professionals, policymakers and the general public to collaborate and participate in a shared mission, ensuring the success and vitality of the Passive House Building Energy Standard.

Vermont Passive House is made up of building professionals, architects, builders, consultants, designers and members of the general public who represent about fifty businesses in and around Vermont. We are all working toward creating sustainable buildings by employing Passive House methodologies. Our members come together to share information about the various issues and challenges involved with building Passive House homes. We compare notes and share solutions to problems big and small, simple and complex. We also strive to expand the Passive House standard into the commercial and public building sector. We are active on many fronts and gladly welcome support from like-minded people.
