Show Highlights 

  • How to create a marriage between design and sustainability on your projects?
  • Hiring a dream team to create a green Bass Pro Store launched Jason’s career in sustainability.
  • How LEED became the central line in sustainable design for Jason’s company in the early years of LEED being in the marketplace? 
  • EMSI helped established LEED in China and other parts of the world as the go-to green building rating system.
  • Jason recommends course topics and skills to make students much more marketable, knowledgeable, and ethical when they get out into the world and practice.

“It’s important for us all to not lose sight of traditional ways of assessing environmental impacts. And, for me, that includes looking back at some of the early pioneers in the late sixties and early seventies and how the tools that they used to measure daylighting design or energy efficiency can still apply today.”
