LOS ANGELES, Sept. 21, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Green Globe International, Inc. (Pink Sheets:GGII) today announced that the company has retained FiscallyGreenSM, which consults in a variety of specialized areas including evaluations on equity transactions, financing, new SEC Climate Change Disclosure policies and sustainability auditing, to establish a current value for the Green Globe brand.  Green Globe International, an 88% majority owner of Green Globe, Ltd., a UK corporation that owns the brand, has stated its intention to sell a controlling interest in the brand, allowing the public company to more efficiently pursue emerging opportunities in the green space within the United States and in other underserved regions overseas.

FiscallyGreenSM advises companies as they navigate through rapidly changing federal, state and local environmental regulations while applying strategic processes designed to benefit the well being of our planet and ensure the preservation of their finances.  Green Globe International Consultant, CFO Jeffrey M. Garrison, is the Founder and CPA of FiscallyGreenSM.

"Establishing a current value for the Green Globe brand is an important first step in our plans to diversify the interests of the company," said CEO and Managing Director, Steven R. Peacock.  "We believe that value has been created in the brand since it was acquired by the company in 2008.  There are currently significant opportunities in the green space, both in the U.S. and underserved regions abroad, and by selling our majority interest, we believe that the company can develop new operations and revenue streams for the public company beyond just managing the Green Globe brand around the world."

The Green Globe brand and program, which traces its roots back to the United Nations Rio de Janeiro Earth Summit in 1992, where 182 Heads of State endorsed the Agenda 21 principles of Sustainable Development, has primarily been used in the travel and tourism industry but is now being expanded to include a growing number of environmentally responsible businesses in a variety of market sectors.  The Green Globe brand is an ideal symbol for the world 's increasing awareness of environmental responsibility and response to global climate change.
