Savills, the international property firm, has appointed Lizzie Batchelor as sustainability manager.
Batchelor’s first job was at the Farming and Wildlife Advisory Group in Northallerton, which she followed with a conservation role at the Global Volunteer Network in New Zealand.
“I started my work within the commercial world at AMEC Earth and Environmental,” she says. “In 2007, I began a new role at AECOM as a sustainability consultant, where I stayed for four years delivering on a range of energy and sustainability projects.”
Batchelor then developed her built environment experience with a role at PRP Architects, before moving to Land Securities as environment manager. “I’ve had a passion for preserving our natural environment for as long as I can remember,” says Batchelor. “I am keen to develop my role working across Savills property management portfolio throughout the UK, identifying where legislative changes and enforcements will have an impact.”
Batchelor will also advise on the Savills UK Sustainability Strategy, supporting the delivery of corporate targets and initiatives associated with this.
