LEED vs. Green Globes

Green building certification programs are third party independent verification systems to assure that buildings meet stringent standards for sustainability and the environment. These standards guarantee that buildings represent little embodied energy expenses, and will consume less energy over their life span. Because green buildings are built with better envelopes, that is, the structural elements that keep the inside in and the outside out, green building certification programs also usually include provisions for indoor air quality.
