About the Green Building Initiative

Members and Supporters Benefits

Members/Supporters continually look for ways to acknowledge their company's involvement in the green building space. Affiliation as a Member/Supporter of the GBI is an opportunity to get a company’s logo in front of thousands of monthly website visitors such as architects, engineers, owners, and others wanting to understand the trends and developments in the ever-evolving green space.

Members/Supporters may want to take one of their own buildings through Green Globes, learn how many points their products are worth in the Green Globes program, and/or post educational materials in the green resource library. Participation allows Members/Supporters of the GBI to capitalize on these opportunities.

Members may want to add their expertise in helping with the governance and oversight of the Green Building Initiative. This valuable opportunity is important both to the GBI who is looking for strong leaders to help shape the organization and to industry professionals who want their voices to be heard.
