Upcoming Webinar – CALGreen

GreenPoint Rated, CALGreen and You

Organized by Build It Green

January 27, 2011 (Thursday)

11:00 AM-12:30 PM

Earlier this year, the Building Standards Commission approved a landmark California Green Code, or CALGreen, for all new buildings in the state.  The code has a list of mandatory green building measures that must be applied to every new building by January 1, 2011, while water measures go into effect July 2011.  The California Green Code also provides two voluntary tiers that may be adopted by local governments as a reach code.

In this presentation, you will learn about:
  • The Green Code’s mandatory measures
  • Similarities and differences to GreenPoint Rated
  • Reasons to go beyond code
  • Ways local government can keep their GreenPoint Rated policy
  • How the Green Code will affect builders and local government officials
