Green and Advanced Codes

Presentations from the August 5th, 2010 Green Code Institute webinar.

A white paper published by the USGBC (updated May 2011), this report discusses the importance of codes and the need for further code development.  Argues that as building codes advance they must incorporate green building practices, thus driving the stringency of LEED certification to advance beyond net zero energy and impact.  Additionally, the report discusses recent advances in building and energy codes including the IGCC, as well as how these codes can be implemented in the future.

This two-page policy brief is an extension of the Greening the Codes white paper that intends to more succinctly answer the question that policymakers so often ask; “How are green building codes and LEED intended to be used as policy levers?” 

 This code compliance case study looks at the role of third-party plan review as a way to improve compliance with building energy codes.
