(Denver, Colo.) Denver-based Thrive Home Builders produces carbon-neutral homes through its new Thrive Carbon-Wise construction method.

The pioneering approach to construction focuses on reducing the embodied and operational carbon of the homes Thrive Builds. It delivers a home that lessens the harsh impact of carbon on the environment and helps combat climate change.

Thrive will build its first homes using the Thrive Carbon-Wise method in the Sonders community in Fort Collins.

“We know that reducing the carbon footprint requires global action, but we’ve made a conscious decision as a homebuilder to do what we can to lessen the impact of climate change while producing a high-performing and quality home for our customers,” Thrive CEO Stephen Myers said.

“Climate change as we know it today has rapidly changed our environment and contributed to massive wildfires, fires in our metro areas and our ever-growing poor air quality. These new carbon-neutral homes will decrease climate change impact one homebuyer and home at a time.”

By applying its Thrive Carbon-Wise building practices to the 220 single-level homes and townhomes in Fort Collins, an estimated 1,023 tons of carbon emissions will be reduced when compared to a 2021 Energy Innovation Conservation Code home.

As a result, the homes will be healthier for the homeowner and the negative impacts on the environment will be significantly lower.
