Institute changes name
The Green Building Certification Institute has a new name. It will now be known as Green Business Certification Inc.
The GBCI certifies for green HVAC and other sustainable features under the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design building rating program.
“GBCI is a dynamic brand that has been synonymous with LEED and green building since it was founded in 2008,” said the GBCI’s CEO, Rick Fedrizzi. “GBCI’s name change is a true reflection of our direction and vision for the organization, which is to extend its core competencies of certification and credentialing services to organizations that want to advance green business and sustainability practices. Third-party validation has become a highly regarded value across the globe and GBCI is well-positioned to fulfill that need.”
