L-R: Jeff Oatman (Director Industry Experience & Skills, GBCA), Paolo Bevilacqua (General Manager, Sustainability, Frasers Property Australia), Lisa Hinde (Sustainability Analyst, JLL) and John Richardson (Vice President Marketing, Interface)
The award recognises up-and-coming sustainability specialists in the property and construction sector.
“Lisa has made an extraordinary contribution to sustainability during her short career,” says the GBCA’s Chief Executive Officer, Romilly Madew, “In the last semester of her Masters, Lisa was hired by JLL as an intern to pull together the submission for Commonwealth Bank Place’s Green Star – Performance rating. The result is Australia’s first 6 Star Green Star rating for existing building operations, and a new ‘world leadership’ benchmark for the industry.”
With a Masters in Sustainable Development from the University of New South Wales, Ms. Hinde has been a member of volunteer teams taking part in sustainability projects overseas, from Vanuatu to South Africa. Chosen from a field of 14 finalists around Australia, Hinde is also a trained Green Star Accredited Professional.
The Future Green Leader Award was supported and judged by Frasers Property Australia and Interface.
“The judges were impressed with Lisa’s achievements, but also with her inspiring ideas, particularly for a downloadable GBCA app able to provide design teams with accurate and up-to date information on Green Star,” says Paolo Bevilacqua, General Manager, Sustainability for Frasers Property Australia.
“Lisa’s passionate commitment to sustainability and exceptional achievements will inspire other young people to embrace sustainable thinking,” says Managing Director of Interface Australia, Clinton Squires.
Lisa Hinde, like all Future Green Leader recipients, receives a one-year VIP pass to unlimited GBCA events, courses, site tours and online learning services, a coveted speaking spot at Green Building Day, three mentoring sessions with an industry leader plus recognition as the Future Green Leader.
