Why Green Globes?
SUSTAINABLE, HEALTHY, AND RESILIENT BUILDINGS FOR ALL
Green Globes® is a comprehensive, science-based building rating system that supports a wide range of new construction and existing building project types. Designed to allow building owners and managers to select which sustainability features best fit their building and occupants, Green Globes certifies projects that meet at least 35% of the 1,000 points that are deemed applicable to the project. Our custom-tailored approach helps you produce the most sustainable outcomes based on your building’s type and purpose. The Green Globes user-friendly software allows project teams to import and monitor performance for individual buildings through entire portfolios.
GOOD FOR BUSINESS & THE PLANET
Environmental objectives pursued through Green Globes lead to lower energy and water bills, reduced emissions, optimized health and wellness benefits, and minimized waste. Often, sustainable improvements qualify for financial and other incentives, and certification often demonstrates compliance with state and federal requirements. In addition, demonstrating a strong commitment to environmental, social, and governance (ESG) practices helps you attract and retain personnel and tenants, generate favorable publicity, and create value for stakeholders.
RECOGNITION FOR INNOVATION & CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT
GBI verifies criteria being pursued toward Green Globes certification, ensuring that building owners, facility managers and property developers meet clearly defined, consensus-based criteria. The rigorous, comprehensive process relies on both prescriptive measures and performance metrics to validate that your project achieved credit for a variety of sustainability, health and wellness, and resilience practices. Green Globes criteria is built around and incorporated hundreds of other consensus documents from ASHRAE, ICC, and IAPMO just to name a few.
TRANSPARENT & STREAMLINED PROCESS
The Green Globes assessment process is intended to mimic the design and construction schedule for new construction, to facilitate a seamless certification, and to prevent time-consuming and costly project changes. For existing buildings, Green Globes serves as a benchmarking tool to evaluate current performance and guide improvement. Green Globes’ cloud-based software allows various project team members to personally access and upload information. This minimizes your coordination time and shares documentation tasks among a variety of disciplines.
