The Green Building Initiative (GBI) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the built environment and reducing climate impacts through exceptional education, tools, standards, and assessments that deliver sustainable, healthy, and resilient buildings. Our strategy for accomplishing our goals involves education and promotion on the use of GBI's Green Globes certification program for commercial buildings and GBI's Guiding Principles Compliance and third-party assessment program for federal building sustainability requirements.
The Green Globes™ system is a revolutionary green management tool that includes an assessment protocol, rating system, and guide for integrating environmentally friendly design into commercial buildings. Once complete, it also facilitates recognition of the project through third-party verification. It's an interactive, flexible, and affordable approach to environmental design.
