EXP’s Vice President of Sustainability Amy Pastor has been named a 2023 LEED Fellow by Green Business Certification Inc. (GBCI). Amy is among 21 professionals who represent exceptional practitioners and leaders within the green building community and have demonstrated mastery of the technical application of LEED, the world’s most widely used green building rating system.
Throughout Amy’s 18+ year career, she has applied her technical expertise and leadership skills to advance green practices for the built environment. She has been instrumental in the LEED certification of over 210 projects, the establishment of EXP’s benchmarking practices and elevating emerging sustainability leaders. Her engagement with the LEED Rating System includes performing energy audits and retro-commissioning on over a million square feet of healthcare, office and hospitality facilities. Amy is a member of the Energy and Atmosphere Technical Advisory Group (EA TAG), USGBC Central Florida Board Chair and is an active leader in USGBC Florida.
“Amy’s recognition of LEED fellow reflects a mastery and application of LEED iterations for greener buildings. Her proven experience as a trusted sustainability advisor continues to result in transformative, climate-friendly solutions for our clients, as well as educational opportunities to advance the next generation,” said EXP’s President and Chief Operating Officer Mark Dvorak.
LEED Fellows are nominated by their peers and must have made at least 10 years’ worth of exceptional impact on LEED and hold an active LEED AP with specialty credential, among other requirements. The evaluation process includes an extensive portfolio review and is carried out by the LEED Fellow Evaluation Committee and supported by GBCI. The LEED Fellow program was established in 2011 to recognize outstanding LEED APs who have demonstrated exceptional impacts with LEED in key mastery elements related to technical knowledge and skill; a history of exemplary leadership in LEED; significant contributions in teaching, mentoring, or research with proven outcomes; and a history of highly impactful commitment, service, and advocacy for LEED.
“Green building professionals are the catalysts for LEED pushing forward and making invaluable contributions to the thriving green building community,” said Peter Templeton, President and CEO of GBCI and U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). “LEED Fellows stand as beacons of recognition for their outstanding efforts in ensuring that our buildings and spaces flourish as healthy, resilient, and sustainable environments for all to relish. Their unwavering commitment to LEED guarantees that we continue shaping a higher living standard for everyone.”
The 2023 LEED Fellows will be recognized at this year’s Greenbuild International Conference & Expo on the main stage on Thursday, Sept. 28. To register to attend the conference, visit the Greenbuild site. To learn more about LEED professional credentialing opportunities, visit the USGBC site.
