Professional Credentials

“I became convinced through experience that Green Globes is an excellent and thorough rating system that covers design, building and the operation of new construction. One of the reasons the university I worked with choose Green Globes was its transparency. Information is easily shared and you don’t have to guess how well your project is doing along the way.” – Barbara A. W.Clarke, Director of Sustainability, JL architects, AIA, LEED AP, Green Globes Professional
