Rob Watson, Father of LEED, to Co-Chair IBcon Sustainability Executive Smart Building Symposium
Realcomm | IBcon is pleased to announce that Rob Watson, the "Father of
LEED", will join Dave Pogue of CBRE as Co-Chair of the Sustainability
Executive Smart Building Symposium. Rob will add his extraordinary
knowledge and experience from the last 30 years as a visionary in
sustainability to the Smart Building Symposium.
Rob is CEO and Chief Scientist of the ECON Group, which optimizes the economic and environmental performance of buildings over their lifecycle.
An international leader in the green building movement and a Senior Scientist for the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), Watson is known as the “Founding Father of LEED.” Under Rob’s direction, LEED became the largest and fastest-growing international standard by which green buildings are measured. New York Times columnist and Pulitzer Prize author Thomas Friedman calls Rob "one of the best environmental minds in America."
Rob is a former Director and Vice Chairman of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). Among numerous international awards for his work, he is the 2013 recipient of the International Conservation Award from the Botanical Research Institute of Texas. In 2011, he was a semi-finalist in the international Zayed Energy Future Award for Lifetime Achievement and was profiled on CNN International. Watson is the only foreigner honored for Green Building Innovation by the Chinese Ministry of Construction and received the first lifetime achievement award from the USGBC in 2002.
I hope you'll be able to join us for this extraordinary event!
