USGBC Launches Green Building Information Gateway

Published on Written by Posted in Media

Nov. 16, 2012 (San Francisco, Calif.) – At its Greenbuild International Conference & Expo, the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) announced the launch of the Green Building Information Gateway. Coined GBIG, the web-based tool will accelerate market transformation by providing greater transparency and understanding of the green dimensions of the built environment.

GBIG provides a transparent view of places, projects, collections and credits, detailing the actions and activities of LEED building owners and project teams over time. The tool provides maps, analytics and insights that reveal trends, patterns and processes in green building practice.

  • GBIG is a global platform for innovation and insights.
  • GBIG seeks to use data-driven insights to create value and competitive advantage for high performing green building projects around the world.

“The launch of GBIG represents years of research, information gathering and testing, and has been a true labor of love,” said Chris Pyke, Vice President, Research, USGBC. “Green building has gone from an era of firsts, to a global movement, connected by data."

Users can search and explore green building activity around the world, analyze trends and patterns in green building practice and discover connections between projects, people, products and services.
