The Emerging Professionals group consists of professionals based in the Charlotte area who are intent on becoming and recruiting future green building leaders. While USGBC Emerging Professionals targets those 30 years of age and younger, the program is open to any person who is new to the green building movement. This includes career-changers and those individuals entering the field of sustainability regardless of age or circumstance.
Last year’s recipient, Camilla Mallberg, is a graduate of Queens University of Charlotte and an Environmental Studies Major. She worked for two summers at the Sweden Green Building Council. Her senior thesis was on the impacts of golf course runoff on an adjacent stream in South Charlotte.
