Proposed Reach Codes for Energy and Building Construction
The Emeryville City Council will be considering several 'reach codes' to reduce the amount of greenhouse gases (GHGs) emitted through building construction and operations. Reach codes are enhancements to the state building codes that have been proven to be cost-effective, and that help the city and state achieve our climate action goals. The reach codes currently being considered are primarily related to new construction, with a few requirements for existing buildings where related retrofits are being done. The intent is to enact changes in line with many other cities in the region, in order to make reduced-GHG building construction and operation achievable and cost-effective.
Fall 2022: A proposed reach code for all new construction will be discussed at City Council. More details will be provided as dates are known.
