Water Conservation

From the start of our sustainability commitment in 2007, we have viewed water conservation as a critical issue for housing, and one that does not get enough attention. Water conservation reduces use of a precious natural resource, saves our homeowners on utility costs and helps to mitigate drought conditions and the load on aging infrastructure. It is one of the many reasons that KB Home has adopted the use of WaterSense labeled fixtures across our company as well as other water-conserving measures that can provide us with a compelling differentiator when local municipalities are evaluating potential new development projects. Through 2019, we have built more than 16,000 WaterSense labeled and Water Smart new homes, more than any other national homebuilder. We have also installed more than 700,000 WaterSense labeled fixtures in our homes through April 2020.

In 2019, we were honored to once again receive recognition from the EPA with the WaterSense® Sustained Excellence Award. This was the fifth consecutive year we have received this award, recognizing our achievements in constructing water-efficient homes, and the ninth consecutive year we have received the EPA’s highest possible award for water efficiency, an unprecedented achievement for a national homebuilder.
