Reconciling the CALGreen Mandatory Requirements and the Build It Green, LEED, and StopWaste.Org Checklists
Below are several quick reference guides that provide a summary of the mandatory CALGreen requirements and the measures in the LEED and GreenPoint Rated green building programs.
Build It Green has updated their checklist to include CALGreen measures because it is a California-based program. LEED has not updated their checklists to include CALGreen. It is anticipated that StopWaste.Org will be updating their Small Commercial Checklist within several weeks to include the CALGreen measures. Please note that Oakland has NOT adopted the CALGreen Tiers and these measures cannot be used in lieu of compliance with the LEED or Build It Green requirements or certification.
