Leading Resort Architect Partners with Green Globe
OBMI Partners with Green Globe Certification for Sustainability Standard
OBM International announced a partnership with Green Globe Certification, a worldwide sustainability system, to establish a global platform to bring sustainability standards through a certification programme to the operation and management of resort destinations and communities.
As a design-firm that focuses on place-specific architecture to emphasize environmentally-sensitive design, OBMI plans to introduce the Green Globe Certification system to its new and existing projects throughout the world to further promote eco-friendly practices. The Green Globe Certification focuses on the implementation of standards beyond the design and construction phases to impact sustainability for the life of a project, its operations and management.
“This partnership is a wonderful opportunity to expand the reach of sustainable practices to our projects and further our vision to promote an international standard that supports sustainability and the wellbeing of our environment,” said OBMI chief executive Doug Kulig.
“As we look toward the future, designing and planning for sustainability will continue to be vital for the long-term success of projects and the health and prosperity of their communities and environments.”
Commenting on the agreement, Green Globe chief executive Guido Bauer said: “OBMI is a dynamic firm concerned with bringing sustainable operation and management to the resorts and communities it has planned in some of the most sensitive tourism destinations on the planet. We are excited that this leading company has chosen to adopt our Green Globe Sustainability Standard as their underpinning sustainability system.”
