Rachel Gutter, Director, Center for Green Schools When the Center for Green Schools at the U.S. Green Building Council was established in 2010 to serve as the driver for the green schools movement, USGBC appointed Rachel Gutter to take the reins. Rachel came to USGBC in 2007 to oversee the launch of LEED for Schools, a version of USGBC’s green building certification program that facilitates the design, construction and operations of high-performance, green schools. To accelerate market transformation, USGBC launched the Center for Green Schools to engage students, teachers, parents, school superintendents, elected officials and other policy makers in a national conversation about the relationship between high-performance educational facilities and high performing students. Rachel’s professional experiences include green building consulting, interior architecture, and education. Her six years of teaching experience fuels her commitment to educating a generation of sustainability natives. She received her BA from Tufts University.
