LEED Fellow, President, BuildingGreen, Inc.
Nadav Malin is the building industry’s acknowledged go-to resource when you need thoughtful perspective on the materials and design solutions that define sustainable building practice. A long-serving member of the national LEED Faculty, he is an experienced trainer and facilitator, convening the network of architecture firm Sustainable Design Leaders and teaching diverse groups about LEED and green building. He is a sought-after speaker for USGBC, AIA, and international events, and as a consultant to architecture firms and government agencies alike.
As president of BuildingGreen, he oversees the company’s industry-leading information and community-building resources, including Environmental Building News, its sister publication GreenSpec, and the project certification help tool LEEDuser. He also served as executive editor of GreenSource magazine throughout its highly decorated seven-year run.
When the LEED rating system was just starting out, Nadav was tapped to lead its new Materials and Resources Technical Advisory Group, which he chaired throughout LEED’s formative years. Nadav also led the team that created the U.S. Department of Energy’s High Performance Buildings Database, and continues to oversee BuildingGreen’s responsibility for ensuring the quality of case studies and collecting meaningful data on actual building performance. When he is not facilitating a rich conversation among design professionals, he can often be found chasing a hockey puck or a soccer ball, depending on the season.
