Friday, 24 February 2012 Meeting

Topic: Green Building Codes

Invited guest: Jeremy Sigmon, Manager, Building Codes Advocacy, US Green Building Council

Brief Bio: Since early 2007, Jeremy has been working with USGBC and its community of advocates on advancing green building policy at the state and local levels.  In that time he has invested much of his time elevating USGBC's focus and profile on greening the building codes.  In his work with building science and regulatory experts across the country, Jeremy has worked strategically on green building code development, adoption and implementation in local, state and national forums.  His work was critical to the landmark partnership between a host of building industry organizations on the International Green Construction Code and Standard 189.1.  Jeremy works closely with many well-established building energy code organizations, continually advancing a more integrated approach to sustainability through building regulatory reform.  He has charted USGBC's work on greening the building codes, was a key contributor to EPA's Sustainable Design and Green Building Toolkit, is an active contributor to the USGBC blog, and is published in Living Architecture Monitor and the ASHRAE Journal.


Jeremy manages USGBC's grassroots advocacy network across all 50 states and nearly 80 chapter organizations to advance USGBC's mission of green buildings for all within a generation.  In his work in state capitals and countless local jurisdictions, Jeremy makes connections where they matter most - between lawmakers and green building experts in their communities.


Prior to joining USGBC, Jeremy was a project manager for altPOWER, Inc., a renewable energy contracting firm in New York City, where he interfaced with developers, contractors, building officials and inspectors, building owners, and oversaw the installation of over 1.5 MW of photovoltaic projects.  He also taught English in French Guiana, and French at his alma mater in St. Louis.  Jeremy earned his bachelor of arts in political science and French from Washington University in St. Louis.
