Dan Labbad appointed as co-Chair of the new UK Green Construction Board
Dan Labbad, an experienced property and construction executive, will take up his position immediately and will sit alongside UK Business Minister Mark Prisk, who is also co-Chair.
The Green Construction Board will allow Government and the UK construction industry to work closely together to develop and put in place a long-term strategic framework for the promotion of innovation and sustainable growth in the industry.
Business Minister and co-Chair of the Green Construction Board Mark Prisk said:
'Greening the property and construction sector is a great challenge and a massive opportunity.
'I'm so pleased that Dan Labbad has agreed to be my co-Chair on the Green Construction Board. I know that Dan's extensive experience and leadership will mean that the Board can make the most of the opportunities over the weeks and months ahead. That way we can push for growth in the sector and make Britain a world leader in green construction.'
Dan Labbad, Chief Executive Officer - EMEA, Lend Lease and Co-Chair of the Green Construction Board said:
'This is a unique and important opportunity for the private sector to work in partnership with Government to provide direction for the green transformation of our sector.
'The group will work to create a platform for investment and innovation and to help leverage the commercial opportunity that the green agenda presents.'
The Green Construction Board will hold its first meeting later in the Autumn where it will finalise its membership and set out terms of reference.
