The webinar will feature a Q&A on the Green Building Initiative (GBI) Green Globes(R) Rating System, moderated by Erin Shaffer, GBI consultant.
The Green Globes tools consist of a web-based program for green building guidance and certification that includes an onsite assessment by a third party. Backed by customer support, Green Globes offers streamlined and affordable tools for use in advancing the overall environmental performance and sustainability of commercial buildings. The program has modules supporting
* new construction (Green Globes for New Construction),
* existing buildings (Green Globes for Continual Improvement of Existing Buildings) and
* healthcare buildings (Green Globes CIEB for Healthcare).
Green Globes tools focus on energy, water and use of life-cycle assessment to reduce the overall impact on the environment, as well as on reducing the overall operational cost of buildings.
In addition to the Q&A, the webinar will feature an overview of AAMA’s FenestrationMasters(™) program from Angela Dickson, AAMA's marketing manager, as well as Joint Product Category Rules Task Group update from Rich Walker, AAMA's president and CEO.
