Sustainable Green Building Codes

Sustainable green building has become the standard practice in California. These building practices are aimed at energy savings, water efficiency, reducing carbon emissions and improved indoor environmental quality that reduce short term and long term impacts on the local environment.

Why Sustainable Green Development?

Responsible environmental stewardship allows future generations to enjoy the world without depleting energy and other significant world resources including air quality, water quality, while reducing noise impacts, minimizing or reusing waste and recycled building materials, conserving water uses, lowering heat absorption, and solar use implementations.
