Green Business Certification Inc. (GBCI), the organization that certifies all LEED green building projects worldwide, joined hands with Amity University, Haryana (AUH) to launch the first ever LEED Lab in North India. LEED Lab is a multidisciplinary immersion course that utilizes the built environment to educate and prepare students to become green building leaders with a focus on sustainability. 

The LEED Lab course will help students assess the performance of existing facilities on campus and choose one building where they will facilitate the LEED for Building Operations and Maintenance (LEED O+M) rating system with the goal of certifying the facility. Students undertake the complete certification process and are responsible for leading all documentation and lastly submitting the project to GBCI for review. At the close of the semester, the students are well equipped to take the LEED AP O+M professional credential exam. Students can walk away with a highly marketable professional credential that signifies their green building experience and knowledge.

 “To create a more sustainable world for all, we must arm today’s students with the knowledge and skills needed to affect real change. These are our future leaders and they hold the power to change the world for the better,” said Mahesh Ramanujam, President and CEO, U.S. Green Building Council and Green Business Certification Inc. “The course meets the demands of the industry by equipping students with career-ready skills and knowledge that can be quickly deployed upon graduation. Higher education institutions, like Amity University, provide an engaging environment that give students first-hand experience integrating sustainable practices into daily campus operations and maintenance using LEED.” 

GBCI is the premier organization independently recognizing excellence in green business industry performance and practice globally. Established in 2008, GBCI exclusively administers project certifications and professional credentials and certificates within the framework of the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) green building rating systems.
