Swedish property company Kungsleden has appointed Erik Florman as its new head of sustainability as of 23 March.
Most recently, Florman was group manager for sustainable business development at Skanska, and in parallel, was acting LEED manager at the Sweden Green Building Council, with responsibility for the coordination of LEED work in Sweden.
Ylva Sarby Westman, deputy CEO of Kungsleden, said:'Kungsleden’s sustainability work is based on the UN sustainable development goals, with a focus on the environment, diversity, business ethics, social responsibility and health.
'Erik’s background in community development and certification work will be a major asset to Kungsleden now that we are strengthening our sustainability programme and further reducing our climate footprint.'
'I want to strengthen Kungsleden’s positive energy in the community by promoting the establishment of sustainable and attractive city districts,' said Florman. 'Key issues will include reducing climate impact from operation, tenant adaptations and new construction. We will also invest in re-use and in building the circular economy.
