We are pursuing a future where Hawai‘i’s built environment becomes a valuable and lasting model of sustainability.
Our Experience and Portfolio Leads the Industry
Green Building Hawaii (GBH) is the leader in green and sustainable consulting across the Hawaiian Islands. Founded in 2007, we have been trailblazing ways for developers, builders, and operators to achieve their sustainability goals. We are deeply committed to partnering with our clients to meet them where they are and take them on the journey of building better.

Being a part of the industry-leading team at EnergyLogic deepens Green Building Hawaii’s capacities and extends our relationships to a national footprint.

We transform built environments into models of sustainability by delivering consulting and training expertise that optimizes performance and maximizes value.
Our team of Hawai‘i specialists will help you navigate the transformation with an integrated approach tailored to your needs.
