UK Green Building Council

The Board of Trustees at the UK Green Building Council (UK-GBC) has appointed Julie Hirigoyen as the organisation’s new Chief Executive. Hirigoyen is currently UK Head of Sustainability for JLL. She will take up her new role in April 2015, succeeding outgoing Chief Executive Paul King.

“I’m thrilled by the opportunity of leading UK-GBC through the next stage of its journey. Its outstanding reputation is richly deserved – not least due to Paul King’s own transformational leadership, but also the sustainability knowhow and can-do attitude of a professional team and a committed membership,” said Hirigoyen. “We’ve come a long way over the past decade, with sustainability now a mainstream concern for many organisations involved in the built environment. The next step requires mass uptake of sustainability solutions across the entire property lifecycle, breaking down silos and deploying systems-thinking to achieve radical change. I am truly excited to tackle this challenge alongside the existing UK-GBC team, members and Trustees.”
