What is GBCI?


Green Business Certification Inc. (GBCI), formerly known as Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI), changed its name on April 16, 2015; is the sister organization of USGBC that administers LEED building certifications and LEED professional accreditations.

When a project submits all the necessary documents for a LEED application, GBCI is the organization that will review the application and determine if all the requirements set forth in a LEED rating system are fully met or not. And if the requirements are fulfilled, GBCI will grant the LEED certificate.

LEED professional exams are also administered by GBCI, and LEED professional credentials are awarded according to the exam results.
