The King County GreenTools Program helps builders, residents, businesses and governments create and sustain green buildings, and sustainability policies and programs. The GreenTools Team provides technical assistance, grants, hands-on training, and information necessary to find locally-produced, high quality sustainable building materials and resources.
The GreenTools Program includes the following initiatives:
- King County Green Building
Developing tools and resources to help County capital improvement projects meet the objectives of the 2008 King County Green Building Ordinance.
- Construction & Demolition Recycling
Providing technical assistance and resources to enable and encourage responsible management of construction and demolition materials.
- Residential Green Building
Helping residential builders and homeowners make sustainable decisions in construction, operations, and maintenance of single-family, multi-family, and affordable residential projects.
- Sustainable Cities Program
providing training, outreach and education, and a collaborative “workshop” environment for cities in King County to learn and work collectively to create regulations that enable green buildings and get projects on the ground.
- Green Building Grants
King County Department of Natural Resources and Parks provides grants for green building projects in King County that meet minimum performance requirements and provide public education.
