Fulya Kocak Honored with Women in Sustainability Leadership Award

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Clark Construction Group's Director of Sustainability, Fulya Kocak, has been awarded a Green Building & Design (gb&d) Women in Sustainability Leadership Award. Fulya received the honor during a November ceremony at the Greenbuild Conference and Expo in Washington, D.C.
 
“The ultimate goal of the awards is to create a global central hub that identifies and advances top-level female sustainability executives who can then, in turn, support younger women with dreams of reaching such levels of success,” said Chris Howe, publisher & CEO of gb&d. “We hope this can be a platform for women who are creating lasting change to act as role models for those who might just be starting their career,” added Laura Heidenreich, the magazine’s president and associate publisher.
 
As Clark's Director of Sustainability, Fulya inspires sustainability throughout the organization, leads and refines the company's sustainable education program, and serves as in-house expert for projects seeking LEED® certification and other accreditations. Fulya's biggest focus is on helping our clients by providing smart sustainable solutions. Fulya has worked directly on more than 50 construction projects seeking certification and provided counsel to teams working on hundreds more.
 
Green Building & Design is one of the industry's leading sustainability publications. The Women in Sustainability Leadership Award winners were hand-selected by a panel that included representatives from the USBGC, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, and Mohawk Industries, among others.
