[ARCHIVED] Contra Costa County Becomes 1st to Achieve TRUE Pre-Certification

Contra Costa County ADR Project Becomes 1st to Achieve TRUE Pre Certification news flash

On November 2, 2022, Contra Costa County was recognized as a leader in sustainability and innovation at the Greenbuild International Conference at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. Contra Costa County’s former Administration Building (651 Pine Street) and Jail Demolition & Redevelopment Project (ADR) has become the first government construction project in the world to achieve Total Resource Use and Efficiency (TRUE) pre-certification. Pre-certification is the first step to achieving TRUE certification which is awarded at the conclusion of the construction based on the total performance of the project.

“What an honor it is for Contra Costa County to lead in sustainability,” said Board Chair Supervisor Karen Mitchoff. “We must continue to work towards sustainable development, zero waste, and eco-friendly living. I am proud of the County’s Public Works department in achieving our goals in sustainability and improving our environment.”

TRUE is a zero-waste certification program used to define, pursue, and achieve zero-waste goals, cut the carbon footprint, and support public health. TRUE is administered by Green Business Certification Inc. (GBCI), whose primary goal is to divert 90% of solid waste from landfills, incineration, and the environment.

Contra Costa County’s Administration Building and Jail Demolition & Redevelopment Project (ADR) completion is expected in the second quarter of 2024. For more information about this project, visit the County’s Public Works webpage
