Deerfield, Fla.—Mapei Corporation’s sustainability manager, Brittany Storm, has been selected to the 2022 class of LEED Fellows by the US Green Building Council (USGBC) and Green Business Certification Inc. (GBCI). GBCI is the premier organization independently recognizing excellence in green business-industry performance and practice globally.
“We are proud of Brittany’s accomplishments; proud of her push to further incorporate sustainability into every possible aspect of operations at Mapei,” said Luigi Di Geso, Mapei’s president and CEO. “We congratulate her on this great milestone and look forward to future innovations.”
Twenty professionals from around the world are being recognized in the 2022 class for their mastery of LEED—the world’s most widely used green-building rating system—and exceptional work in advancing green building practices. “Behind every green building project are dedicated professionals who are committed to creating more sustainable and healthy buildings and communities,” said Peter Templeton, interim president and CEO of USGBC and GBCI. “The LEED Fellows program is aimed at recognizing those individuals and their achievements in the built environment. This year’s class of LEED Fellows represents a group of bold and innovative leaders who have made a lasting, positive impact on their communities through their impressive career achievements.”
Jim Whitfield, MAPEI’s director of technical services, added, “This is an incredible honor, and we are very proud of Brittany’s accomplishment. There are over 200,000 USGBC members; it is quite an acclamation to be elevated to Fellow.”
Last year, 21 members were elevated. “To be eligible, a nominee must have held a LEED AP with specialty credential for a minimum of eight years,” Whitfield said. “The nominee must also demonstrate at least 10 years of exceptional impact with LEED in the key mastery elements of technical proficiency, education and mentoring, leadership, commitment and service and advocacy.”
Storm commented, “It is an honor to be recognized by the USGBC and I look forward to continuing to advance the principles behind LEED on future projects.”
The 2022 LEED Fellows will be recognized on Tuesday, Nov. 1, 2022, during the annual Greenbuild International Conference & Expo, which will be held at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, Calif.
