Department of Defense recognizes Green Globes for assessing building sustainability

Friday, December 6, 2013

There is good news for expanded green building policy advocates! Following the lead of the General Services Administration (GSA), the Department of Defense (DoD) recently recognized Green Globes as an approved program for DoD facilities.

Previously DoD's policy had referenced only the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) program. The updated policy to also allow use of Green Globes was made in a memorandum on November 10, 2013.
