The Honorary Fellow designation (Hon. FIGP) was awarded to Adam Werbach; architect R. Nicholas Loope, FAIA; Eric A. Woodroof, Ph.D.; Mark W. McElroy, Ph.D.; and Dr. Diana Balmori. According to IGP’s President, Grant W. Austin, the Institute is a “global education and credentialing membership group for professionals and academics in sustainable development, specifically architects, engineers, land planners, landscape architects, appraisers, IAQ experts, CSR specialists, accountants and attorneys.”

Adam Werbach, author of Strategy for Sustainability, is widely known as one of the foremost experts in sustainability strategy. At age 23, Werbach was elected the youngest-ever President of the Sierra Club. As Global CEO of Saatchi & Saatchi, Werbach guides the sustainability work of companies such as Walmart, Proctor & Gamble, General Mills and WellPoint.

R. Nicholas Loope, FAIA, is an architect at his boutique design firm focused on custom homes, urban infill, and specialty retail projects, and the principal of HL Design Build LLC, a real estate development firm. Loope also serves as the Director of the Master of Real Estate Development Program at Arizona State University.

Eric A. Woodroof, Ph.D., is an industrial engineer with an emphasis in energy and environment. Mr. Woodroof is the Chairman of the Board of the Certified Carbon Reduction Manager Program and 2010 President-Elect of the Association of Energy Engineers. Woodroof has improved profitability while helping the environment for clients such as IBM, Pepsi, Verizon, and Hertz.

Mark W. McElroy, Ph.D., is the Director of Research at the Center for Sustainability Performance at Deloitte Consulting LLP. McElroy is a Vermont-based researcher, writer, innovator and consultant in the field of corporate sustainability management.

Dr. Diana Balmori is the founding principal of Balmori Associates, a New York-based office that works in architecture, urban design, landscape architecture, ecology, architectural history, and sustainability. Balmori is also a design educator with the Yale School of Architecture and the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies.

According to IGP’s President, “when the USGBC’s LEED program emerged, it set the standard for one’s identification as a specialist in sustainable buildings. However, the market has rapidly become more sophisticated and now demands more in their experts than the certification of a building. The market now demands both the specialist and also the multidisciplinary ‘bigger-picture’ expert who understands the roles of the other experts such as architects, engineers, planners, and everyone else in the sustainable development team. Our Institute provides both multidisciplinary thinking and a rich network with which to plug these professionals and academics into new projects.”
