Seattle has one of the strongest green building markets in the nation. The City of Seattle's Green Building efforts cut its teeth on City-owned green facilities, starting in 2000. We're now taking what we learned from this experience and sharing it with others. In 2006, Green Building evolved to include a greater focus on greening all of Seattle's built environment.
Green Building policy work is located within the Office of Sustainability and Environment (OSE). Green Building incentive programs are facilitated through the Department of Planning and Development (DPD) to best serve the private sector, and to capture green building opportunities with more permitted construction projects.
