Chapter Members in the News – 40 under 40, Experts & National Press oh my!

It’s been a busy week for USGBC-Missouri Gateway Chapter members when it comes to media coverage.

In the January 28 issue of the St. Louis Business Journal two Chapter members were named to the 2011 40 Under Forty Class. Congratulations to Joseph Ostafi of HOK and Michael Roark of Geotechnology!

Note that only subscribers have access to the 40 Under Forty article on-line.


Local Chapter members are often called upon for their expertise in green building, energy efficiency and renewable energy. Marc Lopata, of Microgrid Energy and Secretary of the Chapter Board of Directors, is no exception. Marc was featured in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch’s “Ask the Expert” column on Friday, January 28. Marc provided advice on whether this a good time to install a solar energy system. Hint – the answer is yes!


Finally, USGBC-Missouri Gateway Executive Director, Emily Andrews, made national news in an article in Environmental Leader about Enterprise Rent-A-Car’s new internal sustainability guidelines, which target a 35 percent on savings on Enterprise’s energy and water costs. “Enterprise’s long-term investments in sustainable building practices are setting the standard for its industry,” said Andrews.
