USGBC and GBCI's New Suite of Certifications - Making Sense of the Alphabet Soup
Launching the newest version of LEED – LEEDv4 - was not the only thing keeping USGBC and the Green Business Certification Institute (GBCI) busy in 2016. USGBC is partnering with many organizations to push our mission of green building transformation further than ever before. GBCI has expanded beyond administering LEED to include a suit of complementary certifications and professional credentials.
GBCI now exclusively administers certifications for PEER standard for power systems, the WELL building standard, Parksmart, the Sustainable Sites Initiative (SITES®), Zero Waste Facility Certification and the GRESB benchmark, which is used by institutional investors to improve the sustainability performance of the global property sector.
Additionally, GBCI just announced the formation of a new technology organization to support the missions of USGBC and GBCI. Arc is a state of the art platform that will allow any building to participate and immediately start measuring performance, make improvements and benchmark against itself.
Is all of this making your head spin? Attend our first Quarterly Meeting to start the new year armed with the information you need to understand the focus, audience and key points for each of these rating systems.
Lunch is included with registration.
