Sustainability consultancy appointed to Brindleyplace

Birmingham’s Brindleyplace has appointed international sustainability and engineering consultant Hoare Lea to help it reach new standards of sustainability for the future as part of its journey towards net zero and its commitment to ESG.

ESG – Environmental, Social and Governance – is an internationally recognised framework approach for understanding and measuring the degree to which organisations operate sustainably.

Diana Sanchez Barajas, from Hoare Lea, says: “Brindleyplace is one of the most exciting estates we’ve ever examined in terms of the quality of the work it has already done and its on-going potential as a highly sustainable and inclusive destination for both now and the future. By helping places and people on their journey to greater sustainability, we are promoting a holistic, long-term programme of solutions for the challenges we all face.”

Matt Long, head of customer engagement and placemaking at Brindleyplace, said: “Brindleyplace is a special part of Birmingham’s landscape precisely because of its pro-active focus on wellbeing, its location in the centre of the city’s green and blue infrastructure, and its outstanding public realm.

“Our refurbishment programme across the estate is helping us and our occupiers work smarter and more imaginatively to reduce our carbon footprint. By bringing Hoare Lea on board, we’re developing that proposition further and elevating it by looking at where we can improve and deliver even more for our visitors, occupiers, and the wider community.”
