USGBC Launches Green Building Information Gateway
Web-based tool provides real time green building data, maps, analytics and insights
Nov. 16, 2012 (San Francisco, Calif.) - At its Greenbuild International
Conference & Expo, the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC)
announced the launch of the Green Building Information Gateway. Coined
GBIG, the web-based tool will accelerate market transformation by
providing greater transparency and understanding of the green
dimensions of the built environment.
GBIG provides a transparent view of places, projects, collections and
credits, detailing the actions and activities of LEED building owners
and project teams over time. The tool provides maps, analytics and
insights that reveal trends, patterns and processes in green building
"The launch of GBIG represents years of research, information gathering and testing, and has been a true labor of love," said Chris Pyke, Vice President, Research, USGBC. "Green building has gone from an era of firsts, to a global movement, connected by data."
Users can search and explore green building activity around the world, analyze trends and patterns in green building practice and discover connections between projects, people, products and services. For more information, visit GBIG.org.
