About the California Building Standards Commission:
The California Building Standards Commission (CBSC) was established in 1953 by the California Building Standards Law. Their mission is to create reasonable state building standards and regulations and to enforce those standards. Part of the standards that CBSC produces includes green building standards for structures in California.
About the CALGreen:
CALGreen is the authoritative source on mandatory green building standards. The California Building Standards Commission developed the CALGreen ( which was the first of its kind in the nation). The purpose of the CALGreen is to reduce GHG from structures, promote healthier living spaces that were environmentally responsible, reduce resource consumption, and actively respond to any environmental directives from the administration.
