ABSTRACT
The article reports that U.S. policymakers, businesses, and citizens are serious about addressing the global climate crisis through carbon-mitigation efforts. According to the Department of Energy, buildings account for 71% of electricity used in the country. The annual carbon dioxide emissions associated with buildings' electricity demand, 658 million metric tons, is equal to the combined emissions in Japan, France, and Great Britain. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change identifies codes and certification as effective ways to decrease greenhouse gas emissions from new buildings.
