04.05.23 4 min read
We’ve stepped our industry-leading approach to sustainability and social value forward, as former EMEA head of social value – sustainable operations at JLL, Syreeta Bayne, has joined our senior leadership team as our first head of social value and sustainability.
With approximately 15 years’ experience, six of which were in the construction sector working at Interserve and BAM UK, Syreeta has created, led and consulted on various social and sustainability projects, in partnership with private and public sector clients including Southwark Council, Legal and General Investment Management, AVIVA, La Salle and Homes England.
One of Syreeta’s main drives, will be to further develop our combined approach to social value, sustainability, equality, diversity and inclusion.
As a business, we use collaboration, experience and creativity to transform places and make economies and communities better. Working on the ground, with partners and within communities, to create beautiful, sustainable places for people.
Currently we’re delivering a range of best-in-class sustainable buildings in partnership, including Eden, Salford (a 115,000 sq ft net zero in operation office building with Europe’s largest living wall); Greenhaus, Salford (a collection of 96 Passivhaus-certified affordable apartments); the latest office phase at Talbot Gateway Blackpool (a 200,000 sq ft sustainable new regional home for the Department for Work and Pensions) and Manor Road Quarter, Canning Town (804 homes, with 402 affordable, complete with two-acre park) to name a few.
