Rick's 2014 Greenbuild Journal: Day 2—A business mind in our ranks

He is the yin to my yang. The Sundance to my Butch. He is my twin brother of a different mother. He is Mahesh Ramanujam, the COO of USGBC and a guy who today I introduced to a Greenbuild executive luncheon as my partner through and through. He is not just someone I met six years ago. He is a man who when I hired him in 2008 has done as much as anyone to bring my vision for this organization to life. But until today’s luncheon I’m not sure I’d seen what we’ve...

Rick's 2014 Greenbuild Journal: Day 1—The relationship between public health and...

I have to be honest, I found myself getting choked up as we flew in to New Orleans this week and I looked down at this amazing city in this part of the country that remains like no other. As I looked out the plane’s window, I recalled how just ten years ago at Greenbuild in Atlanta, a small group of USGBC volunteers—the crisis and the aftermath of Katrina still playing out in real time—got together, recruited some key New Orleans residents, and pieced together a road map from...

Rick's 2014 Greenbuild Journal: Wrap-up—Sustainability in World War II

If you were lucky enough to have snuck away either before, during or after Greenbuild to the New Orleans World War II museum, located just a short hop from the convention center down Magazine Street, I hope you saw what I saw. It wasn’t a big exhibit, but it was an important one, and one who’s spirit was evident almost everywhere else you looked. It was the story of this country’s resource management and salvage effort during those four agonizing years. And it was an...

Rick's 2014 Greenbuild Journal: Day 3—Why stop there?

At Greenbuild this year, I’ve heard the figure floated about any number of times: Sustainability has now become a $1 trillion industry. But after having heard that number tossed about yet again today, I started thinking: Why just a trillion? Why stop there? After all, on Tuesday we had the Acting Surgeon General of the U.S. speak to us at Greenbuild. As he so well articulated, if his job is to protect the interest of public health in the U.S., how could he ignore the work environments in which...

Rick's 2014 Greenbuild Journal: Day 2—On the shoulders of giants

Last night my schedule forced me to miss the USGBC volunteer parade down South Peters from the Convention Center to the reception at Howlin’ Wolf.  But when I eventually got there an hour or so later, things were (as you might expect of any place with a name like that) absolutely jumping. And who were among the first people I saw? Joel Ann Todd, Tim Cole and the Jason Dunlop.   And seeing those three made me realize, yet again, how incredible the level of talent is in our...
