Description

Among other factors, increasing uptake of green-building construction in North America requires access to financial capital, enabling policies, and a skilled workforce. As part of the report series, “Improving Conditions for Green Building Construction in North America,” this report describes some of the most successful and innovative green building policies from jurisdictions across North America, analyzes key ingredients of their success, and presents a five-step policy framework model for the incorporation and use of those ingredients.

The report highlights the importance of implementing multiple synergistic policies in order to promote widespread adoption of green building and realize its benefits, and the important role that public-sector leadership forms in the success of green building programs.
