Rick Fedrizzi's Impact

Through his bold, collaborative leadership of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), Rick Fedrizzi has transformed architectural practice, created new markets and sparked innovation that has led to fundamental shifts in resources saved, toxins eliminated, greenhouse gases avoided, and human health enhanced. Since co-founding the organization in 1993, and serving as its President and CEO since 2004, Rick has pursued a sweeping program of work that engages individuals and organizations across the built environment in transforming buildings, communities and cities into places that deliver on the triple bottom line. 

LEED, the premier global green building certification program that certifies 1.7 million square feet of building space per day, anchors USGBC’s work, which has included educating and accrediting nearly 200,000 LEED professionals.  The Center for Green Schools at USGBC, inspired by Rick in 2010, is working to make sure every child is in a green school in this generation.   

Rick has helped redefine the role of NGOs in societal change by forging deep partnerships with the business community, mayors, teachers and students, as well as leveraging the community influence of USGBC’s 76 local chapters and the more than 100 other World Green Building Councils members around the globe to put green buildings and communities at the center of every sustainability effort.  An executive with United Technologies’ Carrier Corporation for 25 years, Rick brings strong business acumen and creative leadership to the global green building movement.

Among his honors are the Charles H. Percy Award for Public Service from the Alliance to Save Energy, the prestigious Olmsted Award from the American Society of Landscape Architects, and the Arents Award from Syracuse University. In 2014, he was made an Honorary Member of the American Institute of Architects.



Rick serves on numerous boards and advisory committees:
