The 2012 International Green Construction Code (IgCC) was published in March 2012 . The AIA has been involved with creating the IgCC since the code development process began in 2009. The IgCC was developed at public hearings with input from experts in code development and enforcement, architecture, engineering, building science, environmental advocacy, government, business, academia and the public. Besides the AIA, IgCC cooperating sponsors include ASTM International, ASHRAE, the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) and the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES).
