DENVER, Nov. 1, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- M.D.C. Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: MDC), parent company to the Richmond American Homes companies, recently published its 2022 Corporate Sustainability Report.
Included in this edition are the company's National Average HERS® Index Ratings (Home Energy Rating System), which measures a home's comparative energy efficiency. The report states:
"In our 2021 Proxy Statement, we set a goal to decrease our national average HERS rating to 50 or less by 2025. We are happy to announce that we achieved a national average rating of 49 in 2022, meeting our goal three years ahead of schedule."
