Chancerygate has announced the appointment of Cathy Myatt as director of ESG.
Cathy joins from construction company Willmott Dixon and has almost 30 years’ experience in delivering environmental improvement and sustainable solutions in both the public and private sectors.
She boasts a wealth of expertise in providing environmental expertise on large-scale construction projects, including 14 years at Crossrail where she was head of environment.
At Chancerygate, Cathy will be responsible for defining, driving and executing the developer’s ESG strategy, framework and targets, focusing on both financial and environmental performance. Her remit will encompass the developer’s UK and European operations, as the company drives into new jurisdictions as part of the business’s expansion strategy.
Commenting on her new position, Cathy said: “Chancerygate has an excellent reputation for not only the capability of its people, but also the high specification sustainable product and a track record of successful delivery.
“Those fundamentals helped attract me to the business and position, and I will channel them to drive positive change in both Chancerygate’s and the wider urban logistics sector’s ESG activity.
“I look forward to working with the team to develop and, more importantly, successfully implement our ESG strategy, framework and targets.”
Currently, all properties at Chancerygate’s development target a minimum EPC rating of A and a BREEAM Excellent rating. The units feature electric vehicle charging points along with solar cells which provide occupiers with renewable energy on an affordable basis.
Chancerygate managing director, Richard Bains, said: “As a developer, we’re committed to delivering high-quality, sustainable accommodation to the benefit of occupiers nationwide.
“Cathy’s appointment is testament to this. She has significant and demonstrable experience in environmental and sustainability matters within the construction sector. I welcome her to Chancerygate and look forward to her leading our ESG strategy.”
