Cleveland's Green Building Standard is based on the "Enterprise Green Communities Initiative" and requires that projects meet all mandatory requirements of the Initiative's standards plus 30 points (with one exception, the Environmental Assessment mandatory requirement under Enterprise Green Communities is not required by Cleveland's Green Building Standard for single-family up to 4-unit residential rehab project).
The City of Cleveland also accepts the LEED Silver as well as the National Association of Home Builders "National Model Green Home Building Guidelines" as equivalents and acceptable substitutes. See the Cleveland Green Building Standard Handbook for more information.
