Annual Report to Governor & General Assembly due Nov. 1 (Chapter 116, Acts of 2007).

In June 2007, the Maryland Green Building Council was authorized by the General Assembly (Chapter 116, Acts of 2007). [An earlier Maryland Green "Buildings" Council had convened in 2001-02.]

The Maryland Green Building Council evaluates current high performance building technologies. It recommends what cost-effective green building technologies the State could require to be used in the construction of State facilities and how to expand green building in Maryland. Also, the Council compiles a list of building categories in which green building technologies should not be used.

In June 2018, the Council further was charged with developing guidelines so that new public school buildings may achieve the equivalent of a LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) silver rating without being independently certified (Chapter 14, Acts of 2018; Code State Finance & Procurement Article, sec. 4-809(f)(6)).

In its annual report, the Council recommends an implementation plan for a State higher performance building program.

Of the Council's sixteen members, the Governor appoints six to two-year terms. Ten members serve ex officio (Code State Finance & Procurement Article, sec. 4-809).
