Home News 10,000 people earn green credentials

WASHINGTON—How big is the green movement? In just one year, 10,000 people have been certified as a LEED Green Associate by the Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI).

“Our 10,000 LEED Green Associates represent the growing commitment of the workforce to building a green economy,” said Peter Templeton, GBCI’s president. “These people are armed with the knowledge to affect change in our built environment and propel the mission of green building forward.”

He noted the LEED Green Associate exam tests for fundamental understanding of sustainable building practices and principles. “It is specifically designed for people who work in industries that support sustain- able building, such as manufacturing, sales, property management, marketing and many others.”

Templeton added earning the credential demonstrates a candidate’s comprehensive and current knowledge of green building technologies and best practices.
