Green Globes (General)

Use this Excel workbook to calculate water consumption inputs for Green Globes.

Green Globes’ use of weighted criteria, non-applicable criteria, and partial credit provides flexibility for building owners to concentrate on green features and policies that are practical and feasible for their building while avoiding scoring penalties and fees.

We are often asked to compare ourselves to LEED. We believe the question shouldn't be "why Green Globes versus LEED" but "which certification is better for my building and my occupants?" We have provided this comparison to make that decision easier.

This document contains guidance that will help you decide which Green Globes assessment and certification program is best for your building or project.
