13277_green-usps-postage-stamp GSA Seeks Comment On Federal Green Building Certification The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) has published a request for comment on which green building rating systems should be used by the federal government.

Every five years, the GSA is required to evaluate green building certifications for government use and offer recommendations to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). To date, the DOE has not chosen a certification standard.

The GSA is recommending a choice from three certification standards: Green Building Initiative's Green Globes, the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, and the International Living Building Institute's Living Building Challenge. The GSA will accept public comments until April 1.
