Since the first BPS policy was adopted by Washington, DC, IMT has worked closely with policymakers and local stakeholders to develop robust building performance standards that address not just energy use but also community priorities, such as health, affordability, and resilience. From this in-the-field experience, we have produced a suite of model documents containing best practice recommendations for the development of equitable and effective building performance standards.
In this guide, IMT recommends strategies, processes, and rules that local and state jurisdictions can use to implement equitable policies. This guide is written to correspond to the requirements of implementing a BPS recommended in IMT’s Model Law for a Building Performance Standard.
