CDD_SustainableBuildings

Description

This point layer shows the location of sustainable buildings in Cambridge. For inclusion in this layer, a building must do at least one of the following: qualify for the City’s Article 22 regulatory process; be certified by Passive House; be certified by Enterprise Green Communities; or be certified by LEEDunder a LEED version that requires the whole building to meet sustainability standards. Some buildings meet two or more of these criteria. Additionally, this layer contains information about other certifications (Energy Star, Fitwel, and WELL) that may apply to the included buildings. If an included building participates in the City’s BEUDO regulatory process, this layer provides two key emissions figures for the building. Information provided about the applicable sustainable building programs for qualifying buildings includes certification levels, certification types, ratings, or scores. This layer includes data from City and non-City sources.

Purpose

This layer was created for general use by CDD staff. It combines information from eight sustainable building certification programs, including two City regulatory programs, to show the extent and location of sustainable buildings in Cambridge.
