King County Executive Dow Constantine yesterday unveiled a proposal for stronger building codes in unincorporated King County to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve indoor air quality.
“The built environment is responsible for nearly a quarter of emissions in King County,” Constantine said in a news release. “Strong building and energy codes are a key component of the county's comprehensive climate strategy. These codes will ensure that new buildings where we live, work, and gather will be more efficient, saving money and energy. High-performance buildings create jobs and provide for comfortable and economical indoor spaces, protecting the health of residents at all income levels.”
