The Green Building Decision Tool is an Excel-based tool that helps cities explore green building options and decide which is most applicable for their communities. 

The tool provides talking points about why building green is important, information about different types of green building standards, and guidance on selecting which type of green building option is best for a local government.

The Green Building Decision Tool requires users to understand the value of building green and explore green building options in order to decide how to implement green building options, review policy options and make recommendations for improvements.
