About the Green Building Initiative

Join The Green Building Initiative and Support Our Mission!

GBI Members and Supporters have one thing in common: They endorse GBI's practical and effective measures to help create a sustainable built environment. GBI member companies, agencies, and organizations support market competition that improves our certification programs, which produce high-performance spaces, facilities, buildings and communities.

Members can also be recognized for their involvement in green building. Affiliation as a Member of the GBI is an opportunity to get a company’s name and logo in front of thousands of monthly website visitors, such as architects, engineers, developers, building owners, facility managers, and others wanting to understand key trends in the ever-evolving green building space. Members may also use their benefits to take several of their own buildings through Green Globes at a reduced cost, learn how many credit points their products are worth in the Green Globes program, and post informative articles on the GBI website in the news feed.

At higher levels of support, some Members also designate one of their employees for consideration as a member of the GBI Board of Directors to add their expertise in helping with the governance and oversight of the Green Building Initiative. This valuable opportunity is important both to GBI and building industry professionals. While GBI is always looking for strong leaders to help grow and mold the organization, building industry professionals want their voices heard.
