The Building Tech Forum on February 16th is going to feature a panel of incredible speakers that will surely prove to provide an engaging, informative discussion surrounding a unique and innovative topic. One of the attending speakers is Gretchen Sweeney, the VP of LEED Implementation at the USGBC, and is one of the leaders behind the new, up-and-coming arc program.
Gretchen Sweeney manages the development of new LEED rating systems and their implementation across different verticals and geographies. She serves on the LEED Steering Committee and guides LEED team collaborations with several hundred LEED stakeholders on LEED committees and the LEED International Roundtable – industry experts who volunteer to develop the best practices in LEED that guide better design, construction, and operations of the built environment.
Gretchen is integral to product development and market deployment of the LEED Dynamic Plaque, a powerful technology platform that scores building performance globally. She has previous experience supporting federal entities to green their building portfolios, developing a voluntary sustainability certification for Maryland municipalities at the University of Maryland Environmental Finance Center (EFC), one of ten centers in the U.S. EPA Environmental Finance Center Network, and in capital markets at Friedman, Billings, Ramsey, Inc., an investment bank in Arlington, VA.
