    California Adopts Nation’s First
    Statewide “Green” Building Code

    California Business Properties Association (CBPA), applauds the action taken today by the California Building Standards Commission (BSC), to adopt the first set of statewide “green” building codes in the nation. Read the CBPA press release. Read a statement on Green Building Codes from the California State Governor.

    Read the actual California Green Codes along with the amendments taken during adoption hearing.

    CBPA members representing all types of properties (commercial, industrial, and retail) have spent months working on iterations of this historic code and submitting comments through the public process and think this is a blueprint that will produce ever increasing sustainable building.

    “Our members applaud the Governor for his leadership in encouraging our industry to adopt feasible and cost effective technologies that ultimately will produce some of the most sustainable buildings in the nation. Adopting these codes through the existing iterative standards process is the best and quickest way to bring about this monumental change,” stated Rex Hime, CBPA President and CEO.
