Regulation Overview: CALGreen

The 2010 California Green Building Standards Code, or CALGreen, is a state-wide initiative, the first of its kind in the U.S., that applies to all newly constructed residential and non-residential occupancies.


CALGreen aims to diminish greenhouse gasses in California, with some estimates predicting a reduction of as much as 3 million metric tons of these harmful toxins by 2020. To achieve this, lawmakers aim to curb environmental impact both during and after construction by limiting construction waste, and by requiring newly constructed buildings to be more efficient via green materials and energy.
