Building Codes Going Green

Share this on:

More and more states and cities are incorporating green building practices into their building codes.

Nearly three times as many cities and counties approved green-building policies last year as did four years ago. A record number of states, 14, took such action last year, as compared with one in 2004, according to the council. So far this year, at least eight states and 22 localities have endorsed green policies.

Not surprisingly, San Francisco is leading the way. Mayor Gavin Newsom recently signed into law what he claims is the strictest green building codes.
