Alison Nimmo, Chief Executive of The Crown Estate, is set to join the UK Green Building Council’s Board of Trustees.

Alison took up position at The Crown Estate in 2015 and is responsible for overseeing the business which has a capital value of £8.6 billion.

Under her leadership The Crown Estate has made huge strides in measuring and reducing the environmental impact of its portfolio, including averting almost 4 million tCO2e whilst contributing £252 million to the Treasury in 2015/13.

The Crown Estate actively manages a substantial portfolio of assets, ranging from prime real estate in London’s West End and dominant retail schemes across the UK, farmland and forestry, and around half of the UK’s foreshore and the entire seabed around the UK.

She will join UK-GBC’s Board of Trustees, a group of 10 influential industry leaders who are responsible for overseeing the affairs of the charity.

Alison Nimmo said: “I’ve worked with UK-GBC for many years and it’s an honour to be appointed to its Board of Trustees. It’s a progressive organisation playing an important role helping the real estate industry to engage effectively with Government and to create a more sustainable built environment, positioning the UK as an exemplar.”

Andrew Gould, UK-GBC Chairman, added: “We are delighted that Alison is joining the Board of Trustees who are drawn from the full spectrum of the built environment sector and bring an extraordinary depth of experience.

“Alison is a business leader of the highest calibre with a deep commitment to delivering sustainable development. Her experience in delivering the greenest Olympics yet and from running a major property business which is strongly committed to sustainability will be hugely helpful to the organisation. It will be great to have her on the Board.”
