California’s Green Building Standards Code Unanimously Adopted
“The California Building Standards Commission (BSC) unanimously has adopted the mandatory Green Building Standards Code (CALGREEN). California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger announced the adoption on January 12. The code, which is the first in the nation mandatory code, requires all new buildings in the state to be more energy efficient and environmentally responsible. Taking effect on January 1, 2011, the comprehensive regulations will achieve major reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, energy consumption and water use. “
