In 2012, as part of the Sustainable DC Plan to make the District of Columbia a nationwide leader in sustainability, Mayor Vincent C. Gray issued a directive to the District’s Construction Codes Coordinating Board (CCCB)
to review, amend and adopt the model 2012 International Codes as published by the International Code Council (ICC). On March 28, 2014, the District officially adopted the 2013 District of Columbia Construction
Codes, comprised of the 2012 International Codes and the 2013 DC Construction Codes Supplement. Included in the 2013 DC Construction Codes are the District of Columbia Green Construction Code (GCC) and Energy Conservation Code (ECC), comprised of the 2012 IgCC and IECC, as modified by the 2013 Construction Codes Supplements (12 DCMR K and 12 DCMR I). These codes incorporate many local sustainable, energy- and water efficient building best practices as mandatory requirements, giving the District one of the greenest construction codes in the country. The codes also extend the green building practices legislated by the District of Columbia Green Building Act of 2006 (GBA).
