Green Building Standards

The City of Seattle has partnered with the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI), and over 20 cities and counties, non-profit organizations, and state and federal agencies and utilities to launch the Playbook for Green Buildings + Neighborhoods ( The Playbook is a new tool available to local governments to help them take immediate action on climate change by rapidly advancing green buildings, neighborhoods, and infrastructures. This web-based resource addresses three areas for each sector: learning, planning and acting. The Playbook offers strategies, tips, tools, and leading actions. It also demonstrates how green development promotes economic development, leads to healthier communities, strengthens energy independence, and supports climate protection.
