California’s New Green Building Codes

In July California Building Standards Commission adopted a green building code  that will apply to new construction projects statewide. It is thought to be a unique package of rules that policymakers believe will be adopted by other states across the nation.

The California Green Building Standards Code [PDF] will not be a requirement until 2010, although voluntary action is obviously encouraged. Policy makers expect the adjustment period adequate time to give all those involved, including builders, local governments and communities, room to comfortably adopt to the new rules.
