Speaker Biography:

In November 2016 global environmental business leader Rick Fedrizzi became chairman and CEO of the International WELL Building Institute (IWBI), a public benefit corporation advancing buildings that put human health and wellness at the center of their design and operation. IWBI administers the WELL Building Standard, an evidence-based system for measuring, certifying and monitoring the performance of building features that impact health and well-being. Rick is also founding chair of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) and former CEO of both USGBC and of Green Business Certification Inc. (GBCI), nonprofit organizations that promote high-performing buildings and communities.  During his tenure, LEED became the world’s most widely used green building rating system.

Rick co-founded USGBC while serving as the environmental marketing officer during his 25-year career at UTC’s Carrier Corporation.  A native of Syracuse, N.Y., with an MBA from Syracuse University, he serves on numerous boards, including the Center for Health and the Global Environment at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and as chair of the Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark.  His book Greenthink:  How Profit can Save the Planet won a prestigious EPPY award for Public Affairs in 2015.
