Join the USGBC - Illinois Chapter, the International Code Council, and ASHRAE Illinois for a roundtable program on understanding and implementing green codes and standards in your municipality!

This event has been approved for 4.0 GBCI CE and AIA CEU hours.

During this program, our speakers will set the stage for how best practices and sustainable outcomes can be driven by a combination of codes, standards and rating systems. This seminar will address synergies and differences between the International Green Construction Code, that includes ASHRAE Standard 189.1, and LEED Rating Systems. Following this overview, panelists will discuss challenges in and the implementation of green codes and standards in towns, villages and cities. In particular, panelists will address the following:
  • Interplay between green construction codes and state and local law.
  • What green construction code is right for my community or state?
  • Green construction code decision making and implementation from start to finish.
After attending this program, attendees will:
  • Understand the distinct and complementary roles of green codes, standards and rating systems and the roles each play.
  • Identify the issues for considering and deciding on adopting a green construction code including challenges that may be faced and how to address those challenges.
*This program will be repeated in 2012 in other regions in Illinois.
