Certified Green Globes AssessorsTM bring their comprehensive knowledge to steer the built environment toward sustainability. Assessors are technical experts in the areas of sustainable design, construction, energy, and facility management who remain current on trends in sustainability best practices and innovations.
Assessors are contracted by the Green Building Initiative® to perform independent third-party assessments for Green Globes® building projects. Working with the project team in real-time, assessors do much more than examine features for points, they also serve as a resource for questions, offer guidance for improvements, and cross-pollinate green building concepts to create holistic solutions.
After becoming a Green Globes ProfessionalTM, Green Globes Assessor candidates complete extensive training in:
- Green Globes assessment methodology for new construction and/or existing buildings
- Conducting on-site assessments, including review of documentation and actual building features
- Creating detailed, written reports based upon on-site assessments
Green Globes Assessors can choose to be an Existing Buildings assessor or a New Construction and Major Renovation assessor. Each carries its own requirements. If you are interested in becoming a Green Globes Assessor, please email us at Training@thegbi.org.
