One City One Hire is an innovative economic development strategy that serves as a catalyst to jump-start the Mayor's pledge to put all unemployed District residents--in every Ward of the city--back to work.
Greening DC Building Code
In February 2008, with support from the Mayor's Green Building Advisory Council, the District developed and proposed a comprehensive overhaul of its building codes to incorporate energy efficiency and environmental standards. These are currently in review. The proposed updated codes incorporate International Code Council 2006 and ASHRAE 189.1 standards for improved energy efficiency, pushing District buildings to 30 percent improved performance over the 2004 codes.
