The 2012 International Green Construction Code (IgCC) increases the energy-efficiency of structures, while providing governments direction and oversight of green design and construction, according to the International Code Council (ICC), document author and one of several U.S. Green Building Council partners in the effort. Developers of the LEED green building certification system and coauthors of ANSI/ASHRAE/ IES/USGBC Standard 189.1, USGBC applauds the new model code that serves as an important new policy option for state and local governments looking to codify green building practice.
