The Green Globes system is used in Canada and the USA. In the USA, Green Globes is owned and operated by the Green Building Initiative (GBI). In Canada, the version for existing buildings is owned and operated by BOMA Canada under the brand name 'BOMA BESt'. The Green Globes system has also been used by the Continental Association for Building Automation (CABA) to power a building intelligence tool, called Building Intelligence Quotient ( BiQ). In 2004, Green Globes for Existing Buildings was adopted by the Building Owners and Managers Association of Canada (BOMA), where it operates under the name BOMA BESt. In addition, the Green Building Initiative (GBI) acquired the rights to distribute Green Globes in the United States. The GBI has committed to continually refining the system to ensure that it reflects ongoing advances in research and technology, by involving stakeholders in an open and transparent process. To that end, in 2005, GBI became the first green building organization to be accredited as a standards developer by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), and began the process of establishing Green Globes as an official ANSI standard. The GBI ANSI technical committee was formed in early 2006. Today, the Green Globes system is used by large developers and property management companies, including, the Canadian federal government, which has adopted BOMA BESt for its entire real estate portfolio.
