CBRE appoints senior sustainability consultant in Scotland

Laura Jones

CBRE has strengthened its ESG offering in Scotland with the appointment of chartered surveyor Laura Jones as a senior sustainability consultant.

Laura will be based in the Edinburgh office where a new ESG consultancy team has been created. She has relocated from CBRE’s valuations team in London, where she carried out commercial property valuations.

CBRE explained that Laura played a key role in launching the firm’s first sustainability in valuations team and worked with several clients to help them better understand the impact sustainability has on a property’s value.

Laura said, “Sustainability is one of the biggest changes to real estate in decades. I’m thrilled to be joining CBRE’s ESG Consultancy team and playing my part in decarbonising real estate across the UK.”

Mark Little, head of CBRE’s Edinburgh office, added, “The appointment of Laura is vitally important to our strategy of providing sustainability consultancy across our UK network. It underpins the great ESG work we have already been doing in Scotland including carbon reduction projects, net zero carbon developments and not least our new Glasgow office which is targeting BREEAM Excellent and WELL Gold accreditation.”
