Richard Fedrizzi, Co-founder, CEO and President of U.S. Green Building Council, speaks at the Urban Agriculture Summit 2011, at House of Sweden, Washington D.C. on November 16. The theme of the Summit is "How do we feed people in the urban era?"
Rick Fedrizzi, founding chair of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) in 1993, was appointed President & CEO in April 2004. Under his leadership, USGBC has cemented its role as a leadership voice in the global sustainability movement. A cornerstone of that agenda has been USGBC's internationally recognized LEED green building certification program.
Under Rick's leadership, collaborative initiatives that have come to fruition include work with the Clinton Climate Initiative on the C40 Cities Program and the Climate Positive Development Program, the International Codes Council, AIA, ASHRAE, ASID, ASLA, BOMA and IFMA. And Rick frequently engages the U.S. Conference of Mayors, White House and Hill staff, and others in promoting green building through public policy at the local, state and federal levels.
