ICC Sustainability Membership Council Video Feature on HERSH2O®

Jun 16, 2020


As part of the International Code Council’s (ICC) 2020 Building Safety Month, the ICC Sustainable Membership Council produced a four-minute video on the ANSI RESNET/ICC Standard 850 and RESNET’s HERSH2O water efficiency rating program.

HERSH2O builds off of RESNET’s nationally recognized Home Energy Rating System (HERS®) Index, which is the gold standard for rating the energy efficiency of a home. HERSH2O is a system for rating whole-house water efficiency that includes both indoor and outdoor uses. The RESNET water efficiency rating program is based on the technical specifications of the ANSI RESNET/ICC Standard 850. For more information click on HERSH2O.

The Sustainable Membership Council lauded the RESNET/ICC effort, “New and innovative codes and standards like the ANSI RESNET/ICC 850 Water Efficiency Rating Index are making our communities more sustainable and efficient.”
