Clean Buildings Portal

Commerce is pleased to offer our new Clean Buildings Portal (Portal). The Portal provides building owners a secure system to manage their building’s compliance with the Clean Buildings Performance Standard and submit applications to the Early Adopter Incentive Program.

As of Oct. 13, 2021, Building Owner Notifications Letters have been mailed. Please expect from five to 10 business days for your letter to be delivered. Each notification letter includes instructions on how to create a Secure Access Washington (SAW) account and a unique code needed to access the Portal. You will need the unique code to sign in to the Portal for both Full Access and Guest Access.

If you own a covered commercial building over 50,000 gross square feet and do not receive a notification letter with a code to access the Portal by Oct. 29, 2021, please complete this form

Data Verification

Data Verification is the process we use to correct information about misidentified buildings. Data verification can be done by either using full access or guest access. If you own multiple buildings and only some of those buildings need to comply, submit your application through Full Access.

See the Data Verification Application guide for more information.

Misidentified buildings include:
Structures that are not actual buildings (e.g. docks and piers); buildings that are less than 50,000 gross square feet; or if you are not the owner of the building.

Clean Buildings Portal – Full Access

To gain full access to your Clean Buildings profile, start by registering for a Secure Access Washington (SAW) account and add the Portal Service. You can then launch the portal service from your SAW account.
