i don’t know about cities, but apparently the state of California has the greenest building codes in the country, requiring plumbing to cut down on indoor water use, divert 50% of all construction waste from the landfill to recycling, use low-pollutant paints, carpets, and floorings, and install separate water meters for different uses in nonresidential buildings. Energy systems are required to be inspected to cut down on inefficiency, and cities in California with stricter building codes (for instance San Francisco) are allowed to keep their previous standards intact.
Chicago has the most LEED certified buildings (88) in the country. See the link below for more information.
