The COVID-19 pandemic has had a massive impact on the entire world and negatively impacted people not just with physical illness but in terms of emotional and financial strain. The economic fallout of the pandemic is being felt in many industries, and lots of people have lost their jobs.
Responding to this, online sustainability education provider GBRI is using its 10-year anniversary as a means to only celebrate the company but give back. GBRI has recently announced that it is offering multiple scholarships for young students and professionals who want to obtain LEED and WELL credentials.
To speed things up, GBRI has waived the standard application process in favor of allowing applicants to use an honor system. On their scholarship page, GBRI is offering special codes that applicants can use to reduce their out-of-pocket expenses on GBRI’s exam prep and C.E. courses.
This move from GBRI is admirable and shows that the company is grateful for success it has enjoyed over the past decade. The company demonstrates its commitment to helping build flourishing communities that are supported by individuals and businesses working together.
In a further move, GBRI’s co-founder and Director of Sustainability Jeslin Varghese has published a free webinar on Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) during the pandemic. Aired live recently, the webinar attracted near 2000 registrants, and is able to be watched on the GBRI website.
With the celebration of its 10-year anniversary, GBRI is doing a lot to give back and support sustainability education even more than it already does. Here’s to another 10 years of GBRI helping professionals achieve sustainability building credentials that enable them to positively impact the world and the human race.
