GBCI Celebrates 10,000 LEED Green Associates

The Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI) has awarded the LEED Green Associate credential to more than 10,000 individuals.

The credential, which was introduced to the market just last year, has secured its status as the preeminent designation for professionals who support the green building industry.  The LEED Green Associate exam tests for fundamental understanding of sustainable building practices and principles. It is specifically designed for those individuals who work in industries that support sustainable building, such as manufacturing, sales, policy, real estate, property management, law, marketing, and many others. It is also a starting point for students and professionals who desire to eventually become LEED APs with specialty.

Earning a LEED Credential demonstrates a candidate’s comprehensive and current knowledge of green building technologies and best practices. As an indicator that an individual has met this benchmark of understanding, the LEED Green Associate credential is a mark of recognition for professionals who may not have direct involvement on a LEED project, but who work closely with the sustainable building industry in other capacities.
