WASHINGTON — Beginning January 2009, the U.S. Green Building Council will no longer certify buildings with its LEED rating system, according to Indiana Living Green.
The responsibility will pass to independent, accredited certifiers overseen by USGBC’s sister nonprofit corporation, the Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI). GBCI will oversee Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design certification and will accredit certified bodies and assessors. The organization said the certification rules have not changed.
