Code of Conduct

Green Building Initiative’s (GBI) Code of Conduct was developed during the revision of ANSI/GBI 01-2019 in response to requests for stricter guidance on acceptable and unacceptable behavior. As detailed in the Code of Conduct, anyone concerned about a potential violation of the Code of Conduct can report concerns to GBI Staff and/or Leadership.

The enforcement guidelines have been developed and reviewed by GBI’s general counsel to provide mechanisms for fair resolution of matters involving GBI’s Code of Conduct. GBI’s Standards Committee is the sole arbiter regarding any enforcement action, and the decision of the Standards Committee for a matter involving the Code of Conduct is final and binding with respect to each participant involved in such matter.
