The U.S. Green Building Council this week announced its 2012 class of LEED Fellows.
Given Portland's strength in green building its no surprise that the region is well-represented in the U.S. Green Building Council's second annual class of LEED Fellows.
The council's fellows, nominated by peers, are recognized for their contributions to furthering the field of green building.
The LEED Fellows program was launched last year with one Portlander making the inaugural list: Alan Scott, principal at The Cadmus Group.
The 2012 class of fellows includes:
- Elaine Aye, Green Building Services
- Clark Brockman, SERA Architects
- Ralph Di Nola, Green Building Services
- Mark Frankel, New Buildings Institute
Also in the 2012 class is Jason McClennan, the Seattle-based CEO of the International Living Future Institute, which has staff in Portland.
In choosing its fellows, the U.S. Green Building Council considers achievements in the following areas:
- Technical proficiency within the LEED — Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design — rating system.
- Education and mentoring of other building professionals.
- Leadership demonstrated in applying sustainability practices and procedures, both in the individual's own organization and elsewhere.
- A history of commitment and history to green building.
- Demonstrated advocacy for sustainability ideas.
"The Fellows are leading innovators and forerunners of the green building movement. Their commitment to LEED is advancing the field of green building and transforming the sustainable built environment," said Rick Fedrizzi, president and CEO of the U.S. Green Building Council, in a press release.
