New International Green Construction Code Released

Published by Julia Salerno, April 30, 2012.

The recently released 2012 International Green Construction Code (IgCC), will increase the energy-efficiency of structures, while providing governments direction and oversight of green design and construction, according to the code’s author, International Code Council (ICC). The new code comes at a time when the USGBC records its 12,000 green building in the U.S.

The 2012 IgCC offers a new code baseline that can be tailored by local governments and was developed during the last three years with input from code and construction industry professionals, environmental organizations, policy makers and the public. Click here for more information.
