The International Code Council’s codes, in place in many jurisdictions throughout the United States, address President Obama's Better Building Initiative’s focus on improving energy efficiency in commercial buildings across the country, according to a Feb. 4 release.

"The International Energy Conservation Code and the International Green Construction Code Public Version 2.0 are two major resources that, with appropriate enforcement capability can deliver on the initiative’s energy-efficient goals for buildings, and upgrade sustainability in existing and new American office buildings, stores, schools, city halls, county buildings, state capitols, federal buildings, universities, hospitals and commercial buildings in general," said Richard P. Weiland, ICC CEO, in the release.
