Green Globes is a nationally recognized “Standard Development Organization” accredited by the ANSI (American National Standards Institute). The ANSI committee includes a balance of users, producers, interested parties, and NGOs that create a consensus-based process for the development of Green Globes' standards. These standards are then integrated into a comprehensive 1,000 point scale system to measure the environmental impacts of a building with categories ranging from Energy, Indoor Environment, Emissions, Water, Site, and Project/Environmental Management.
When using an IB membrane/roofing system on your project/building, you can potentially earn several points such as:
7.2.2 (Heat Island Effect) – An IB roofing system can obtain up to 6 points
7.3.1 (Storm Water Management) – A Green Roof obtains up to 9 points
8.2.3 (Power Demand Reduction) – An IB roofing system may contribute up to 8 points
10.1.2 (Materials Content Assemblies) – IB membranes containing recycled content may contribute up to 8 points
10.1.4 (Transportation of Processed or Manufactured Materials) – An IB membrane may contribute up to 5 points
10.5.1 (Demolition and Construction Waste) – IB’s PVC Reclamation Program may contribute up to 6 points
