has appointed a sustainability manager to lead its low-carbon and energy efficiency initiatives nationwide.
Sophie Hutchinson joins the sustainable office fit out company with a remit to evolve, develop and deliver Morgan Lovell’s ongoing sustainability and energy proposition. She was previously head of environmental management at Green 2020.
A graduate of the London School of Economics, with a BSc in Environmental Policy, Sophie’s areas of expertise include the economic analysis of the environment, climate change strategy, environmental assessment and sustainability management.
Sophie is also an associate member of the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment (IEMA) and a member of The Royal Geographical Society.
David Henderson, managing director of Morgan Lovell, said: “Sophie comes to us with a wealth of knowledge, gained in both an academic environment and in the field.
Earlier this year, the office design and fit out company became the first organisation in Britain to achieve certification to BS EN 16001 with the BSI.
The green office experts secured the energy management standard after establishing processes and systems to improve energy efficiency at their London office.
Since introducing a range of measures – including fitting smart meters to measure and control energy usage, and technology to power-down equipment such as computers when they are not in use – Morgan Lovell has seen its energy bills drop by around 30 per cent over 12 months.
