CalGreen Professional Training

Calgreen is the building standards code in California that took effect at the beginning of 2011. The goal is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and control energy and water consumption. California is leading the way towards greener and advanced building practices in an effort to reduce waste and conserve resources. The goal of California is to achieve 33% renewable energy by 2020. Previous legislation was the Green Building Standards Code passed in 2009, however, this code was optional, and Calgreen is the first mandatory compliance. Under Calgreen all new buildings have to reduce water consumption by 20%, divert 50% of waste from landfills, and require separate water meters for nonresidential buildings. In order to become Calgreen compliant you have to pass a state building inspection.

The California Building Standards Commission now requires compliance with the CalGreen building code. California now requires residential and commercial building department permit submittals to comply with a wide range of sustainability measures in the areas of: planning, design, energy & water efficiency, materials and resources, commissioning and environmental air quality.
