San Francisco Attorney Anna Gehriger Becomes a LEED Accredited Professional

In June 2009, San Francisco attorney Anna Gehriger became a LEED Accredited Professional (“LEED AP”). LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. The LEED rating system which is administered by the Green Building Certification Institute was developed to encourage green building practices. To become a LEED AP, one must demonstrate a thorough understanding of green building techniques, the LEED Green Building Rating System, and the certification process. Ms. Gehriger is interested in all aspects of the growing green and sustainable building movement, ranging from building design and effect on occupants, to helping to resolve potential legal disputes concerning the LEED rating system. Ms. Gehriger is a member of the U.S. Green Building Council’s Northern California Chapter (http://www.usgbc-ncc.org/) which promotes and advocates for green building.
