The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) and Green Business Certification Inc. (GBCI) appointed Peter Templeton as president and CEO.

A long-time green building proponent, Templeton has served at USGBC and its partner organization Green Building Certification Inc. (GBCI) for over 20 years. During the past year, he has led the organizations on an interim basis.

Templeton has played a leading role in the development, launch, and ongoing operation of the LEED program. “Organizations around the world are focused on environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance,” said Don Anderson, chair of the Green Business Certification Inc. Board of Directors and Operational Advisor to Blackstone. “Quite simply, Peter gets it and is working collaboratively with partners in all sectors to mobilize action at scale. He is committed to evolving our frameworks and ramping up capacity needed for building owners and occupiers to meet aggressive goals for decarbonization, resilience, health, and equity in the built environment.”

As president and CEO of both USGBC and GBCI, Templeton will direct the organizations’ efforts to increase the reach and impact of green building and green business market transformation activities around the world.
