Founder & CEO
Summer Fowler is a passionate advocate for the intersection of Sustainability and Social Equity. After working at a large architecture firm, she pioneered several cutting edge sustainability projects, including one of the first Living Buildings the June Key Delta House, and first LEED Neighborhood Development Pilot project in Dubai.
When that firm went under in the 2009 downturn, she founded ecoREAL with the mission to make Green Building accessible for all. She built her Green Canary software after working on a Federal LEED jobsite, and living with the subs on a remote location learning their headache with documentation. Her Lean LEED tools integrate sustainability seamlessly with the design and construction process to ensure every project can optimize their performance goals and ensure a healthy indoor environment.
She teaches, leads, and innovates to make Green Building the best investment for the people, the buildings, the environment, and the people it serves. Her triple bottom-line approach has helped owners, including the City of Portland, Multnomah County, School Districts, Non-profits and private owners like the Ritz Carlton, exceed their sustainability and equity goals. This has included non-profits achieving Net Zero goals they didn’t think were possible through incentives, to making the leap from LEED to Well Building for the City of Portland’s economic historic major renovation of the Portland Building.
To help all types of projects achieve these she became an expert in making sustainability more affordable, including ETO’s Path to Net Zero program to help projects from low-income school districts and affordable housing to push their energy goals towards achieving the Architecture 2030 challenge despite budget concerns.
Summer started the Sustainability and Equity Committee for the Oregon Association of Entrepreneurs 10 years ago before joining the board and continues to be a leader. Summer is the Vice Chair, Oregon Association of Minority Entrepreneurs. She is now Well Faculty and serves on the International Well Building Institute’s Equity Advisory Committee to promote Well Building for All.
