International Green Guide Resources
Welcome! From this page, you can access a broad range of resources that are relevant to international users.
While all of the Green Guide resources are open source and available free of charge, you need to register in order to access them! Approximately 25% of Green Guide registrants are from outside the U.S. Registration allows you to subscribe to the Green Guide Forum and receive our bi-monthly newsletters. If you are a new user, register here.
Take our International Survey
The Green Guide has developed a short survey for international visitors interested in sustainable healthcare and Green Guide tools. The survey takes approximately five minutes, and is available in English and Spanish.
Download Green Guide documents and tools
While the Green Guide documents have been primarily developed for a U.S. audience (see About the Green Guide for the development history), the unique health-based approach to sustainable healthcare has global resonance. All Green Guide documents are in English.
Register a Construction or Operations Project
The Green Guide currently has 52 registered projects from outside the U.S. Registration is free-of-charge and open to any hospital or healthcare project at any stage of construction or operational initiatives. The Project Registration section will walk you through the registration process step-by-step.
We have gathered interesting resources — reports, building rating systems, etc. — from around the globe. Visit our Resources section — if you have suggestions for additional English-language Green Building resources, please send us a link.
We welcome participation and feedback from all registrants – feel free to use our website, contact us, and participate in the Forum, project registration, and volunteer committees! Again, welcome to the Green Guide for Health Care!
