Austin leads the nation in green building with the Austin Energy Green Building (AEGB) program.
Austin Energy Green Building (AEGB), the nation's first green building program, was created in 1990 by the City of Austin and is now the nations's most successful sustainable building program. An Austin-specific rating system allows the city the flexibility to address envirommental, community, health, and economic issues specific to the Central Texas region. AEGB's seven major aspects of sustainable design and construction are:
- Integrated Design
- Indoor Environmental Quality
- Materials & Resources
- Education & Equity
The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design™ (LEED®) building certification program
Developed in 1993 by the US Green Building Council (USGBC), a non-profit organization that promotes sustainability in building design, construction, and operation, LEED® is a nationally accepted benchmark for high performance green buildings. LEED® promotes a whole-building approach to sustainability by recognizing performance in seven key areas of human and environmental health:
• Sustainable Sites
• Water Efficiency
• Energy and Atmosphere
• Materials & Resources
• Indoor Environmental Quality
• Innovation in Design
• Regional Priority Credits
