Membership part of ongoing commitment to sustainability in real estate
Gerald Eve has become a member of the UK Green Building Council (UKGBC), as part of its ongoing commitment to sustainability in the real estate sector.
Launched in 2007, UKGBC is a charity that unites the UK property and construction industry, working to radically improve the sustainability of the built environment by transforming the way it is planned, designed, constructed, maintained and operated.
Part of the World Green Building Council, UKGBC has over 500 member companies and organisations and addresses issues such as climate change, resource use, biodiversity, health and wellbeing, and socio-economic impact. It operates collaboratively to share best practice and advocate for stronger standards and progressive policy.
Tom Marshall, senior associate and sustainability lead at Gerald Eve, said: “We are excited to become a member of UKGBC. As a firm we are in a strong position to influence the debate and drive change in real estate, working towards a more sustainable future. These values are central to how we do business and the advice we provide. Our membership of UKGBC is a key part of our approach and we look forward to working with our fellow members to address the issues the property industry and wider society face.”
