Green Building Initiative (GBI) Green Globes

In 2005, the Green Building Initiative licensed the Canadian program Green Globes for use in the United States. Green Globes is an online, interactive assessment tool designed for new construction (an existing building version is making its way to the market and may be available soon). Roughly 150 confidential questions are arranged in seven categories: project management, site, energy, water, resources, emissions and effluents, and indoor environment.

Although Green Globes is initially a self-assessment tool, buildings can be certified with third-party verification. Green Globes aggregates survey scores in an anonymous database that is used for benchmarking. Green Globes is dynamically linked to ENERGY STAR's Target Finder software so that information provided is automatically calculated into target goals for your project.
