Deepa Sathiaram is a compelling example that one individual can make a
difference. Considered as one of "India's Top 15 Nature's Keepers", Deepa
through her inspirational leadership at national, state and regional levels
was profiled as "a person who possesses the power to influence, change,
protect and stand by her convictions; people who understand the harm that has
been caused to this planet; who protect Mother Nature through their thoughts,
words and designs".

She has actively spearheaded India's green building movement in the last
decade tirelessly propagating sustainability in the built environment. As a
highly admired leader, green consultant and education advocate, Deepa founded
En3 in 2003 to specialize in sustainability and energy efficiency consulting.
Since then, under her leadership, En3 has been consulting for over 600+ green
buildings and 300 million square feet of green buildings world-over with
operations in the U.S., India and the Middle East.

She has successfully lead to make En3 one of the largest green design and
consulting firms in the Indian subcontinent. Moreover her tireless
professional and community service clearly demonstrates her commitment to
promote sustainability and green education and to help instill environmental
responsibility among the future generations of India.

She is a trained HVAC design professional with over 20 years of experience
and has also served as Past President of the ASHRAE South India Chapter.
Apart from green buildings, her area of expertise include energy simulations
and analysis, HVAC design and performance, conformity assessment, building
department accreditation, accreditation of testing and calibration
laboratories.

She has also been involved with various other sustainability initiatives
apart from green buildings. She has co-developed the ICC-ES Environmental
program (formerly SAVE program) for ICC Evaluation Service Inc. She has also
co-developed the pilot building department accreditation program for
International Accreditation Service Inc., a subsidiary of International Code
Council (ICC). She has served on several technical groups including the LEED
International technical working group with USGBC, Technical Working Panel on
inclusion of Chapter on Sustainability for the National Building Code of
India and also on the technical working group for the Dubai Environmental,
Health and Safety department.

Her passion includes sustainability education and reaching out to school
students to create more environmental awareness among future generations. She
has been spearheading an initiative called Green-I Contest for Schools, a
program that in the last 6 years has educated more than 5000 school students
on various environmental and green practices and spread awareness on green
buildings to over 500,000 school children.
