The USGBC's new Public Policy Library is a resource that allows users to look up green building policies by state or locality.
The library provides green building-related and LEED-specific policies across the United States. It is an interactive platform with policy details at the federal, state, and local levels including those that incentivize, require, or otherwise promote green building measures.
The resource provides information on significant building energy efficiency tax incentives and energy benchmarking policies. The library will be updated regularly with the latest information on new, amended, or elapsed policies.
“The database is not exhaustive, given its scope and the many policies in effect. In order to stay as fresh and current as possible, we need your help,” according to a USGBC news release. “If a relevant policy is not included or you find one that needs to be updated, please let us know by completing our form online or by emailing USGBC.”
