Green Building Policy Clearinghouse on the Web

The good folks over at Sustainable Industries recently published an article about is a clearinghouse for green building policies and measurement practices.

In just a few minutes on the site, we used the Policy Map tool to find out how Kansas implemented a law in 2007 that requires all residential single-family (and some types of multi-family) home builders to provide energy efficiency information to potential buyers. Similar to the Kansas law is a California rule that requires commercial buildings to get an Energy Star rating and disclose it to potential buyers or renters.

This was just one way to use There are obviously many other ways to take advantage of the wealth of information on the site, so don’t hesitate to visit it the next time you need an idea for how to encourage green building in your area.
