Climate Equity & Community Engagement in Building Electrification Toolkit
Derived from the City of San Francisco’s engagement with Urban Sustainability Directors Network’s Zero Cities Project, the purpose of this initiative was to experiment with different forms of community engagement to highlight best practices, lessons learned and models for creating effective community engagement around equity and climate resiliency through anchor-community strategies.
Sustainable Design & Green Building Toolkit for Local Governments
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) developed the Sustainable Design and Green Building Toolkit for Local Governments to assist local governments in identifying and removing barriers to sustainable design and green building within their permitting process. This Toolkit addresses the codes that would affect the design, construction, renovation, operation and maintenance of a building and its immediate site.
