Description:Since 1 January 2007, a Green Mortgage Programme has been in place to encourage the construction and purchase of homes that are energy-efficient. Infonavit, an institution that provides credits to workers for home acquisition, is offering and promoting the programme. Infonavit provides increased financing to families purchasing a green home of between MXN 6000 and 8000, equivalent to approximately USD 720; this can represent an extra bedroom or more spacious home. The programme encourages developers to build greener homes as well, and paperwork for developers planning to build energy-efficient homes is simplified.
