Launching the newest version of LEED, LEED v4, was not the only thing keeping USGBC and 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 Arc, 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.

Continuing education hours: This program qualifies for 1 GBCI continuing education hour.
