State Energy Program: California Green Building Initiative

Green Building Initiative
State of California Executive Order S-20-04

There's nothing like state mandates to give you "certification status"! A goal to reduce energy use by 20% requires that facility managers find products and services to accomplish that goal -- and certified materials, equipment and processes are a reliable way to develop adequate strategies to meet the goal.

California's Executive Order sets a goal of reducing energy use in state-owned buildings by 20 percent by 2015 (from a 2003 baseline) and encourages the private commercial sector to set the same goal. The order also directed compliance to the "Green Building Action Plan," which details the measures the state will take to meet these goals. More details about the project can be found on the documents page.
