LEED Backlash

Ohio may be banning LEED, according to an article on EcoWatch.

Maine and Georgia have already succeeded in banning LEED for state building projects.

Ohio already has 100 LEED-certified schools. However, chemical, plastic and timber companies support the Green Building Initiative’s (GBI) Green Globes. Green Globes refers to itself as “the practical rating system.” Green Globes has been around since 2000. It is an online green building rating and certification tool used primarily in Canada and the United States.

Developed by ECD Energy and Environment Canada, an arms-length division of Jones Lang LaSalle, Green Globes is licensed for use by BOMA Canada (Existing Buildings) and the Green Building Initiative in the USA (New and Existing Buildings).
