Christof Jantzen, principal partner in Behnisch Architects LLP, has been elected one of 16 Green Leaders 2009 by the California Real Estate Journal. The California Real Estate Journal states: “In selecting the 16 people we had to look beyond the common metrics of sustainable success to seek out more fundamental influences from among the more than 50 nominees. With more than 100,000 Accredited Professionals under the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Program, it is not enough to simply be a LEED AP.

Green leadership must come from deep in the bones of real estate practitioners. Going green is not something new for true green leaders, but something that is fully integrated in their business practices.”

Green Leaders are chosen among US-based architects that have gained a reputation for their approach to sustainable architecture.
