Dana Schneider Appointed to Board of Urban Green Council

Leader of JLL’s Northeast Energy and Sustainability Services tapped by New York green building organization

NEW YORK, December 16, 2014 — Dana Schneider, vice president and head of JLL’s Energy and Sustainability Services in a region anchored by New York, Boston and Washington, D.C., has been appointed to the board of directors of the Urban Green Council. Schneider has been a long-time supporter of Urban Green, serving on its program and education committees in a technical advisory role.

A nonprofit organization established in 2002, Urban Green focuses on creating a more sustainable city through education, advocacy and research. The organization seeks to make a difference in New York buildings, which are the source of 70 percent of carbon pollution, 95 percent of electricity use, and 80 percent of water use in the city.

Urban Green, the New York chapter of the U.S. Green Building Council, carefully studies how to make the biggest impact on the health, cost, and sustainability of the city’s buildings. The organization collaborates with the professionals who design buildings, the policymakers who make the laws about their use, and the people who renovate and build them.

In her role at JLL, Schneider focuses on energy optimization as well as the development and implementation of energy and sustainability programs for new and existing clients. She also specializes in energy and sustainability performance and LEED certification for new and existing buildings and portfolios, as well as commercial interiors.

Schneider led the implementation of a whole-building energy retrofit of a historic landmark building in New York, where she was instrumental in developing a groundbreaking analytical model for maximizing energy and environmental value per dollar spent for the project. Schneider is now replicating this energy optimization process in buildings across the U.S. She also manages the energy and sustainability aspects of mission critical facilities across the country and has led LEED certification assignments for more than 24 million square feet of properties in the Northeast.
