About Green Building Initiative
The Green Building Initiative (GBI) is a 501c3 not-for-profit organization whose mission is to accelerate the adoption of
building practices that result in resource-efficient, healthier and environmentally sustainable buildings. We advance this
mission through credible and practical green building approaches for more sustainable communities.
Our strategy for accomplishing our goals involves education and promotion on the use of GBI’s Green Globes® building
rating system for private commercial buildings and GBI’s Guiding Principle Compliance® third-party assessment program
for federal building sustainability requirements.
Our initiatives promote the use of GBI’s Green Globes®
building rating system for commercial buildings and GBI’s Guiding
third-party assessment program for achieving federal building sustainability requirements.
This third-party certification lowers risks for owners and ensures that both buildings and the teams who build and
operate them are better able to achieve desired performance outcomes.
We measure our impact in achieving our mission in several ways, including growing the number of building ow...ners that
achieve certification of individual buildings, building projects, and portfolios of buildings.
