He is also the founder and President of the German Green Building Association (GGBA), a non-profit advocating the LEED benchmark in Germany and throughout Europe. Kay represents Germany at the LEED International Round Table and collaborates extensively with his regional counterparts to ensure LEED’s successful integration into European code and building practices.
