About the Credentialing Steering Committee

GBCI administers a suite of credentials that validate and recognize those who demonstrate competencies related to environmental sustainability and human health as they relate to the built environment. The credentialing programs are governed by the CSC, a body with balanced composition that represents the diverse body of stakeholders who hold its professional credentials.

Each seat represents a different industry sector and GBCI credential. Members contribute their thoughts and experiences from the field and work together with GBCI staff to steer the direction and development of the GBCI credentials. To learn more about the roles and responsibilities of a CSC member, please review the charter.
