City Council unanimously voted to adopt modern building codes in Philadelphia and the bill was promptly signed into law by Mayor Kenney. The 2018 International Codes represent an increase in energy efficiency of over 30 percent as compared to current code.

In a matter of months, Philadelphia transformed from lagging nearly a decade behind its peers to becoming a nationwide leader in modern code adoption. This move is one important step toward the city meeting its goal to reduce carbon emissions 80 percent by 2050.

This change in Philadelphia applies to commercial and multifamily buildings since most residential buildings are still governed by the state’s Uniform Construction Code, which adopted the 2015 Codes with just a few amendments.

As a leader, Philadelphia will need resources to ensure smooth compliance and enforcement.Green Building United and its partners are offering ongoing trainings and networking opportunities to support energy code changes. Training for and communication between the architecture, engineering, and construction industries and the code enforcement community is essential for the City's full energy and energy cost savings potential to be realized.
