Green Globes; building certification; sustainability; LEED; comparison

Although Green Globes has far fewer building certifications compared with LEED, the Green Globes system has some interesting attributes missing from LEED—most notably the on-site evaluations of completed projects. It seems likely roofing contractors will increasingly encounter projects with Green Globes-based requirements because Green Globes is the most established third-party certification system in the U.S. for those looking for an alternative to LEED.
