Implementing Sustainability into Municipal Code

GBCI: 0920003297
Helping local governments design and implement successful “beyond code” programs for new commercial and residential buildings is key to reducing water and energy consumption. The goal is to help localities establish voluntary or mandatory programs that go well beyond traditional minimum code requirements for new buildings. The panel will address the keys to successful adoption and implementation and discuss the primary areas that are typically included in beyond code or green building programs, including energy efficiency materials and resource conservation, water efficiency, indoor environmental quality, and site development and land use.

This course is approved for GBCI CE hours, but is not available through Education @USGBC.
