The IGCC represents the merger of two national efforts to develop adoptable and enforceable green building codes. The International Green Construction Code (IGCC) provides a set of requirements intended to reduce the negative impact of buildings on the natural environment. The IGCC was developed with the intent to be consistent and coordinated with the ICC family of Codes & Standards: the I-Codes. It is applicable to the construction of high performance commercial buildings, structures,and systems, including existing buildings subject to alterations and additions, utilizing both traditional and innovative construction practices.
