Strategy EI2.9: Develop policies to encourage LEED or comparable certification standards for all new city- and county-owned buildings and major renovations.

Strategy Description

Jurisdictions can set the example for energy-efficient, low impact development techniques by committing to meeting green building standards, such as LEED, for all new publicly-funded projects. Many cities and counties across the United States have determined that energy-efficient, high-performing buildings lead to cost savings for taxpayers and healthier work environments for public-sector employees.
