Environmentalist Daniel Tishman to be honored July 21. (Transcripts).

Daniel R. Tishman, one of the nation's leading builders and a passionate environmentalist, will receive the Humanitarian Award of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University at the annual dinner of the Einstein men's division on July 21 at the Old Oaks Country Club, Purchase, N.Y.

"Mr. Tishman is being recognized for his efforts to incorporate good environmental practices in the design and construction of buildings that are both environmentally and economically practical, thereby improving the quality of life for the building's tenants and their neighbors," said Marc Karetsky, chairman of the event and a secretary of the men's division. Karetsky is a managing director of Banc of America Securities in Manhattan.

As chairman and chief executive officer of Tishman Construction, Interiors and Technologies, Daniel Tishman heads one of the nation's oldest construction companies, responsible for building countless, notable projects around the United States. He is the fourth generation of Tishmans to head the family business, founded by his great grandfather Julius in 1898

A strong proponent of "green design," Tishman is also executive vice president of Tishman Realty Corporation. As a result of his background in the construction and real estate industry and his passion for the outdoors, he has demonstrated a positive link between construction and the environment. He has a strong record of support for organizations and efforts that are dedicated to improving the environment. He serves on the board of trustees of the Natural Resources Defense Council, on the advisory council of the American Museum of Natural History's Center for Biodiversity and Conservation, and on the board of governing trustees of the Jackson Laboratories.

Tishman earned his bachelor of science degree in ecology and planning from Evergreen State College in Olympia, Wash. and a master of science in environmental studies from Lesley College in Cambridge, Mass. Before joining the Tishman organization, he operated his own land development and construction company, based in Maine.

In addition to his leadership in organizations concerned with the environment, Tishman is the chairman of the New York division of Israel Bonds, a member of the executive committees of both United Jewish Appeal and the New York Building Congress, and a governor of the Real Estate Board of New York.

Tickets range from $1,000 for a day of golf followed by dinner to $500 for tennis and dinner to $100 for the dinner only. A tribute journal will also be published. Additional information may be obtained by calling (718) 430-3818.
