The Green Building Initiative (GBI), developer of the Green Globes rating system, has released a draft of its GBI-01 standard for public comment. The standard provides the technical framework for achieving certification under Green Globes for New Construction.

The current version of the standard was published in 2010, though GBI updated Green Globes in 2013 in a process separate from ANSI standard development. Future updates are set to continue under ANSI’s “continuous maintenance” guidelines.
