Can you invest a few hours a month to help improve Green Globes? Please take a few minutes to complete an application that will provide the opportunity for you to be considered for a voting seat on the consensus bodies that will change and improve Green Globes. It’s important!
Green Globes for New Construction 2019 - Consensus Body – GBI’s revised ANSI standard, commonly called Green Globes NC 2019, is undergoing continuous maintenance review. If you’ve used Green Globes, your input is needed. Please complete an application at https://www.thegbi.org/ansi and help us by contributing a bit of your time and expertise.
Green Globes for Existing Buildings 2019 – GBI will soon be releasing a revised version of its Green Globes EB rating system. Applications are also being accepted for individuals interested in reviewing and voting on content and proposals for changes to this rating system.
GBI membership is not required to participate on either consensus body. Any member of the public with expertise to share can apply for consideration for a seat on this body. To apply, use the appropriate form located at https://www.thegbi.org/ansi.
Task Groups – GBI will be forming Task Groups to review specific proposals for changes to criteria in ANSI/GBI 01-2019, a new construction and major renovations focused document, as well as corresponding criteria in GBI’s soon to be released pilot revision of Green Globes for Existing Buildings 2019. Task Groups will review proposals and provide recommendations to Consensus Body members during public meetings. Task Groups are intended to be highly focused working on only one or two items.
Applications will be reviewed in September 2019 and therefore, we request applicants to return completed forms by Monday, August 26, 2019. Please send completed Consensus Body and/or Task Group applications to Secretariat Emily Marx at firstname.lastname@example.org.
