In 2009, the Harris County Commissioners Court approved a measure that requires all new county buildings to meet minimum LEED certification standards. Buildings do not have to register with the the U.S. Green Building Council. The Harris County Facilities and Property Management (FPM) Division also requires all county buildings to meet minimum energy efficiency and sustainability measures, as described in the Best Green Practices Document.
