It is widely recognized that building codes are an important measure for scaling decarbonization. In order to meet the state’s climate mandates of reducing emissions by 45% by 2030, the built environment needs to be extensively transformed. Creating a voluntary building stretch code gives municipalities an important tool to transform their building stock toward meeting climate goals, reducing air pollution, and increasing energy affordability. HB 6572 would allow municipalities to increase efficiency standards by 10% on large construction projects, this modest improvement is a much needed first stride to reaching these climate goals. Please see this written testimony from the CT Green Building Council for more detailed information.
