QWhere can I find information on how to acquire a Green Building Certification?
East Lansing, MI
AThere are several programs of this nature, including LEED certification from the U.S. Green Building Council, Energy Star from the EPA, and the Green Globes initiative from the Green Building Initiative. These are the main programs that come to mind, but I know there are at least a few more.
