The USGBC and the GBCI

The LEED standards were developed by the U.S. Green Building Council, or USGBC. Although created in the United States, the LEED standards are recognized internationally and have been used to build more than 3.6 billion square feet of sustainable space.  

While the USGBC focuses on refining the LEED standards, its sister organization, the Green Business Certification Inc, or GBCI, actually runs its programs - LEED Certification for building projects and LEED Accreditation for sustainability professionals.
