In December 2003, the City of Atlanta passed a green building ordinance that applies to city-owned facilities and city-funded projects. This green building ordinance applies to all new construction and renovation projects in which the building has 5,000 square feet of occupied space or the total project cost exceeds $2 million. These projects must incorporate sustainable design principles and must meet the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver rating. Departments must submit an annual report to the City's environmental manager to demonstrate compliance with this standard.
