How LEED and Green Globes stack up

An analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the Green Globes rating system and LEED standards puts LEED ahead, but doesn’t discount the merits of Green Globes. “LEED is a more rigorous, broad-based, credible system that delivers more environmental benefits. But if a developer or owner doesn’t have the time, money or stomach to pursue LEED certification — which is not uncommon — Green Globes can achieve far more environmental gains than doing nothing at all.”
