Message From the President


901 New York Avenue

901 New York Avenue, Washington, DC


In January, we announced the achievement of LEED-EB Gold Certification for two office buildings in Washington, DC: 901 New York Avenue, developed and managed by Boston Properties; and Metropolitan Square, managed by Boston Properties and jointly owned by Boston Properties and J.P. Morgan Asset Management. Leonardo Academy was the LEED consultant supporting the successful achievement of Gold Certification. LEED-EB Gold Certification is a prestigious rating given to existing buildings for maximizing operational efficiency and minimizing environmental impacts.
Our Transportation Program continues to  
help reduce diesel emissions. Leonardo Academy was awarded a $1,600,000 Diesel Emission Reduction Act Grant by the EPA earlier this year. This award will impact an estimated 50 diesel engines in EPA Region 5, throughout the Upper Midwest.

Leonardo Academy is  partnering with the Morgridge Center for Public Service at the University of Wisconsin-Madison through the WE Badger Volunteers program. We host students that wish to volunteer their time through the Morgridge Center. Volunteers research and write articles and create and compile content for the World Green® web site, Leonardo Academy's online green information and social networking community to promote sustainable living.
