BOSTON, MA — Stantec sustainability expert, Blake Jackson, has been named a 2021 LEED Fellow by Green Business Certification Inc. (GBCI) — the organization responsible for driving the implementation of the LEED green building program. Jackson is among 21 professionals who represent leadership within the green building community and have demonstrated mastery of the technical application of LEED, the world’s most widely used green building rating system.

Jackson serves as the East Coast Regional Sustainable Design Leader for Stantec out of the firm’s Boston office, acting as a company-wide resource working at the nexus of sustainability, wellbeing, and resiliency. With approximately 20 years of experience in the built environment, he currently supports planning and permitting for several projects totaling 40 million gross square feet, including interiors, commercial, multifamily, and master planning. Jackson is an author, speaker, and educator, currently teaching at the Boston Architectural College, Roger Williams University, and the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. He previously was elected Vice President of Advocacy for the Boston Society of Architects from 2016-2018.

“I’m honored to be among those named to the 2021 class of LEED Fellows and the first at Stantec to earn this distinction,” Jackson said. “Green building and sustainable design are at the heart of our mission to put communities first every day. I’m proud to champion these practices in my work both as a designer and educator.”

“The 2021 cohort of LEED Fellows are driving the movement for sustainable buildings and healthy lives around the world,” said Mahesh Ramanujam, President and CEO of U.S. Green Building Council and GBCI. “Through their commitment to LEED and the green building sector, this year’s fellows have demonstrated true leadership in the industry, and their contributions have had a real impact on people’s lives, building stronger, more resilient communities.”
