Plan ahead to reduce emissions when you build.
- Maximize opportunities for energy efficiency in new buildings and major remodels.
The most efficient way to make your building energy efficient is to consider emissions before you ever swing a hammer or order the cement mixer. Whether you are building from scratch, or remodeling, the Climate Action Plan can help guide you towards better building practices.
What you can do today:
The Colorado Green Building Guild offers its members green building education, networking and other resources for creating energy efficient and sustainable buildings.
For Residential Developers:
Don't just hammer away. Check out Green Building and Green Points. These programs encourage the use of sustainable remodeling and building methods and technologies to conserve energy, water and other natural resources.
For Commercial Developers:
Help businesses meet their bottom line. Commercial buildings that cut utility costs help our businesses put their money to better uses. Boulder's commercial building codes require energy efficiency levels that are higher than in most communities. Contact the city's Planning and Development Services Division at 3030-441-1880.
