To address climate change, Colorado statute set goals to reduce greenhouse gases (GHGs) across the state 26% by 2025, 50% by 2030, and 90% by 2050 (from 2005 levels). Buildings are the fourth largest source of GHGs, so improving buildings so they use less energy is an important way to help reach these goals. 

House Bill 21-1286 requires certain Colorado buildings to reduce GHGs by 7% by 2026, and 20% by 2030, below 2021 levels. To help meet these goals, the Air Pollution Control Division has proposed a rule to establish building performance standards, which is scheduled for a hearing before the Air Quality Control Commission (AQCC) in May 2023. If approved, this rule would go into effect in 2023 and would apply to commercial, multifamily and public buildings 50,000 square feet or larger.
