In 2005, Scottsdale approved a green building policy for new city buildings and remodels. The resolution requires all new, occupied city buildings of any size to be designed, contracted and built to achieve certification by the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Program at the "Gold" certification level as long as there is a payback period of no more than five years for projects designed to the Gold Standard. Where the payback is anticipated to be more than five years, city staff recommends to the City Council which level of LEED certification is appropriate. In addition, all renovations and non-occupied city buildings will be designed, contracted and built to include as many principles of both the LEED program and the city's green building program as feasible.
