Iowa Sustainable Design Standards, Rule 661, Chapter 310
Minimum certification level: LEED Silver
In 2009, the Iowa State Legislature enacted a policy providing a tax credit or tax refund for commercial buildings that earn or exceed LEED Gold certification. If a commercial project pursues sustainable design standards for a purpose other than to qualify for a tax credit or refund, the building must earn at least LEED Silver certification. Additionallly, buildings intended to be used as data centers must achieve LEED certification to qualify as a sustainably-designed development.
