(IS-2014-91) Green Building Report for the District of Columbia 2012
This is a joint publication by District of Columbia (DC) Department of Environment and Green Building Advisory Council. The 2012 annual report summarizes green building efforts including Green Construction Code development and Green Building Fund grant program. DC has some unique land and building characteristics that provide challenges as well as opportunities due to large number of historically-protected public space, federal land ownership and predominantly federal government and foreign government high profile tenants. The District continues to lead the nation with the highest LEED certified projects on per capita basis for any large cities in N. America.
