The Green Building Initiative has released “The Guiding Principles Compliance for New Construction,” for federal buildings to help federal agencies meet sustainability mandates in the construction of new buildings.

A sister product to the GBI's program for existing federal buildings—Guiding Principles Compliance EB—which to date has been used to certify more than 250 existing federal buildings and facilities—GPC NC was developed “to significantly reduce the amount of time and effort required from federal agency personnel to achieve a green building certification.”

The guide relies on standards of the Green Globes rating system.
